SPU leaders were invited by Qatar’s Prime Minister & Minister of Interior, His Excellency Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, to visit Qatar this September.
Sheikh Al-Thani came to Seattle in 1981 as a student to begin his overseas education and study English on SPU’s campus. In May 2016 he made a return visit to SPU to renew ties to the community.
It is an honor to be considered friends of the Qatari people.
