About the Provost

Welcome Message

Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) was founded as a research-intensive university with extraordinary opportunities for students to engage in inquiry and discovery. We encourage our students to broaden their intellectual depth by seeking out problems and working through solutions that lie at the crossroads of traditional disciplines.

With the support of a reputable faculty body, who are all leading thinkers in their field, an array of academic and research resources, and international partners, we strive to empower our students to become future leaders, ones who embrace an entrepreneurial mindset, think critically even beyond the classroom, and are always in pursuit of new solutions to national and global challenges.

At the Office of the Provost, we provide our students with the tools to develop their interests, interdisciplinary programs designed to fulfill a societal need, high-caliber faculty to mentor them on their journey, and a dynamic and opportunity-rich environment. In supporting our students to serve their communities, whether at an institutional, national, or global scale, we fulfil our university mission to create positive change. In turn, we find that our graduates emerge as global citizens with lifelong learning skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and communications, which will enable them to not only compete but also succeed in the global market.

I invite you to explore our incredible academic offerings and opportunities through our webpage. Whether you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate student, or looking to expand your career through our lifelong learning opportunities, there is something for everyone at HBKU.
