Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU) held the first alumni reunion event on 28 May.
The event brought together alumni from HBKU and its partner universities from all past graduating classes for the first time to celebrate their achievements since graduation and introduce them to the tools HBKU Alumni Relations offers to support their professional careers.
The event also launched the Alumni Board Committee (ABC) to lead and be the voice of the alumni community at Qatar Foundation’s campus.The 12 member board consists of representatives from HBKU and partner universities who will advance career, social and networking initiatives of the alumni community in collaboration with HBKU Alumni Relations.
The ABC will meet regularly and begin its programs in the fall semester.
Addressing the alumni at the event, Dr. Khalid Al Khanji, Vice President of Student Affairs at HBKU said, “Reunions are about building communities. You have been part of one when you were a student who studied, lived and dined here, but it does not have to stop there. Communities can be built and they can grow. The community is you, and you build it by your attendance and participation. What we hope to do at these events is to facilitate that.”
Through these activities and initiatives, HBKU Alumni Relations brings awareness to the extended alumni community that graduates from HBKU and its partner universities belong to.HBKU builds on unique partnerships that add unprecedented value to the education of its students, and HBKU Alumni Relations extends this value far beyond its alumni’s university years.
