NU-Q Delegation Spend A Week On Home Campus
NU-Q Delegation Spend A Week On Home Campus

Doha, Qatar – May 16, 2018  –  Northwestern University in Qatar sent a delegation from Doha to Evanston for its annual NU-Q in Evanston week. The delegation of faculty, staff, and students showcased their creative work, research, and shared experiences from the Middle East.
 
“Although we are 7,000 miles away from our home campus, NU-Q is very much a part of the greater Northwestern community,” said Everette E. Dennis. “Our students are familiar with Northwestern traditions and most have visited or spent time studying on campus; our faculty and staff are connected and work closely across continents to align their respective work; and we’ve had numerous visits from Northwestern leadership, which has been instrumental in ensuring our reciprocal cooperation.”
 
For five days, members of the Northwestern community in the U.S. met with and learned from representatives from the Qatar campus. A series of events, including a special “NU-Q Day – Celebrating the Student Experience” invited people to learn about the academic and extracurricular offerings at NU-Q, pick up some free gifts, and explore Arabic calligraphy.
 
In addition to the delegation holding meetings with faculty members, administrators, and students, NU-Q’s student ambassadors were on campus for the week to connect with Evanston students and their fellow NU-Q peers who are studying at the School of Communications this semester.
 
NU-Q’s leadership hosted a luncheon that provides a platform for a report to the Evanston community on the state of the Doha campus and its programs.
 
In addition, the Evanston community was invited to a screening of “Lonnie Holley: The Truth of the Dirt,” a documentary by Northwestern Professors Marco Williams and Danielle Beverly. Williams and Beverly hold joint appointments on both the Evanston and Doha campuses.
 
Throughout the week, NU-Q will also provide details about its planned new museum – The Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar – which is scheduled to open in the fall. The Media Majlis will be the first university museum in Qatar and the first in the region to address major themes and ideas in media, journalism, and communication across the Arab world. The museum will also feature extensive digital-capacity exhibitions that will allow visitors to engage and contribute to the content that is showcased.
 
NU-Q is Northwestern’s 12th school and only global campus. It brings together the curricula of Medill, the School of Communication, and the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences to deliver a world-class American education in Qatar. Operating in Qatar since September of 2008, the school will be celebrating its 10-year anniversary next year. With seven graduated classes, NU-Q has an alumni network of 282 graduates and has confirmed the enrollment for the fall of 2018 as its largest incoming class to date. 
 
Located in the heart of the Middle East, NU-Q’s students are in the epicenter of a geopolitics, witnessing a massive transformation in the role of media and communication. NU-Q offers a number of opportunities for students from the Evanston campus to spend a semester exploring life and sampling classes in the Middle East and sends its students to the home campus for a similar experience.
