On November 30, 2023 – December 2, 2023 it will be held the Seminar on Leadership Development for New Presidents and Emerging Leaders in Higher Education.

Organised by the International Association of University Presidents (IAUP), jointly with Qatar Foundation and Santander Universidades, the Seminar will be hosted by Qatar Foundation.

This Seminar will provide peer-to-peer learning and valuable insights from current and former university Presidents as well as higher education experts from around the world. The invitation is addressed to higher education institutional leaders (Presidents, Rectors, Vice Chancellors) and for emerging higher education leaders who have been serving on such capacity less than two years.

Here you will find the Brochure and the programme and more information is available on the Seminar webpage.

There is the availability of a limited number of scholarships covering partially attendance cost, transportation or lodging, especially from institutions with limited availability of financial resources located in the Middle East and North Africa region, Sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia. Also, due to the nature of the interaction and personalized mentorship, the Seminar will have a limited number of attendees.

A series of international events in the area of education will take place in Doha during the last week of November 2023, including the International Conference of the International Association of Universities, to be hosted by Qatar University on November 25-27 and the 2023 World Innovation Summit on Education  to be hosted by Qatar Foundation on November 28-29, 2023.
