Commission Reaches Out to Cairo University
The Commission’s Executive Director Ms. Elizabeth Khalifa called on Prof. Hossam Kamel, the President of Cairo University, this past November. During their meeting Ms. Khalifa and the President discussed the various ways in which the Commission and the University are cooperating with each other and possibilities for furthering their cooperation. Following that meeting, the Commission’s Executive Director joined by the Manager of Alumni Affairs, Ms. Safaa Abbadi, met with Fulbright alumnus Dr. Ezzaldin Abusteit, Vice president for Education and Students Affairs. Dr. Abusteit was invited to attend the Hubert H. Humphrey Alumni Forum First Seminar, “The Egyptian Constitution: Challenges and Hopes” that took place later in the day at the Faculty of Economics and Political Science of Cairo University. Through visits like this, the Binational Fulbright Commission is able to reach wider and deeper into Egypt’s academic and professional communities.
