SLP students attend Al Maktoum College Academic Training Program
Seven students from the American University of Sharjah (AUS) Office of Student Affairs' Student Leadership Program (SLP) attended the Academic Training Program in Multiculturalism and Leadership at the Al Maktoum College of Higher Education in Dundee, Scotland, held February 11-March 8, 2013.
The four-week program focused on enlightening students in key areas such as multiculturalism and Muslim society, leadership and management, and civilization dialogue.
Participating students included interior design students Noora Abdulaziz Lootah and Azza Alaaeldin Aboualam, international studies students Maysoun Hassan Al Dah and Alya Al Mansoori, international relations student Aisha Jasim Almidfa, finance student Alya Ali Mawaleed and business student Arwa Mohamed Almuaini.
A total of 48 female students from universities across the UAE and Qatar were selected to participate in this annual program. The program included comprehensive course lectures, tutorials and debates that allowed the students to explore elements of leadership, diversity and a multicultural society in more depth.
In addition to participating in the intensive training program, the students visited cultural and historical sites. According to Aisha Al Midfaa, a Junior II, International Studies major, the program was one every international studies major should undertake.
"The Student Leadership Program (SLP) at the Office of Student Affairs is pleased to hear students say that the experience was life changing. Our role is to provide students with opportunities that aid in their development, hoping that they will become effective and efficient members of society. I recommend more students to take advantage of these opportunities and contact SLP to find out more about what we offer. We thank Al Maktoum College for their hospitality and suburb organization and look forward to future collaborations," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
