The Intellectual Awareness Unit at Umm Al-Qura University launched dialogue sessions that targeted fourteen female student clubs on Monday, 7 Rabi` Al-Awwal, 1441 A.H., in the presence of the officials of the health club and the Female Guides Club. This activity falls within the visit programs of the student clubs for the sake of empowering intellectual awareness among female students, enabling them to deal efficiently and actively with other female students.
The sessions administered by the Deputy Head of the Intellectual Awareness Unit, Dr. Nouf Al-Jueid, centered on three topics: university student's influence on her community, intellectual issues and directions for female students, and moderate views. This activity took place in the presence of His Excellency the Assistant Professor of Da`wah and Islamic Culture at the College of Da`wah and Fundamentals of Religion, Dr. Tahani Bahwairith, the Professor at the Department of Principles of Education at the College of Education, Safiyyah Bakhit, and the Assistant Professor at the Department of the Principle of Education at the College of Education, Dr. Eman Asarh.
Concerning the recent developments of these sessions that are held regularly throughout the current academic year, the Vice Dean of Student Affairs for Student Activities and Training, Dr. Nahlaa Hariri, stated that they are arranging to hold dialogue sessions every week between two clubs at the headquarters of the student clubs, after coordinating with Dr. Nouf Al-Jueid. She added that there will be dialogue sessions among female students concerning the three topics pertaining to the sessions.
We wish to be continuously aware of the female students' orientation, their being the face of the university community. This is because the female students meet together more than they meet any other groups, which necessitates making sure of their intellectual views.
It has been indicated that the first semester will include six student clubs, while the second semester will witness the participation of the other clubs.
