Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation (QF), attended Georgetown University in Qatar’s ‘GU-Q 100: A Celebration of Knowledge’, a gala event to commemorate more than 100 books published by faculty and staff since the university’s doors opened in 2005.
HE Sheikha Hind bint Hamad al-Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of QF, was the honoured guest speaker at the ceremony, marking a major milestone in the collaboration between QF and Georgetown University that began with the launch of its Doha campus in support of the development goals of Qatar National Vision 2030.
Speaking at the event, Sheikha Hind said, “Through its wealth of research in the field of humanities and social sciences, Georgetown University in Qatar has made a significant contribution to the international profile of Qatar Foundation and Qatar as a hub of new knowledge, original thought, and intellectual courage in confronting issues which influence what our world is, and what it can be.”
“Being based in Qatar has opened up fresh avenues of discovery for Georgetown faculty, not only by enabling them to explore and research the Mena region from up close rather than far afield, but also by the varied perspectives that our diverse student body contributes in creating a deeper bank of knowledge and academic thought.”
The evening gala, at GU-Q’s Education City campus, was also attended by deans of QF partner universities, members of the diplomatic community, students, faculty, staff, and other special guests. Dean of GU-Q, Dr Ahmad Dallal, said, “At Georgetown University in Qatar, we are setting an example of how to produce relevant research at a global standard, and training the next generation of knowledge producers to do the same.
