Conclusion of Qatar Young Professionals Institute

The Young Professionals Institute is over and our guests from Maryland and San Diego are preparing to return to the U.S.A. We had a number of articles about the initiative but one of them appeared in the Qatar Peninsula ( yesterday.

The greatest satisfactions from the YPI are that 1) we drew all of higher education in Qatar together to explore the importance of student affairs work and 2) we informed the 23 graduate students from the U.S.A. about Qatar's heritage, vision, and the commitment it has made to preserve its culture while preparing for a global leadership role in the 21st century. The participants from the U.S.A. and Qatar engaged fully and deeply with each other and that's the most we could have hoped for. However, I have a hunch that we actually accomplished much more that will unfold in the coming months.
