Alfaisal University, which now ranks as one of the top private universities of the world, unveiled its new website here on Tuesday after several days of planning and preparation.
Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, who is also the chairman of the board of trustees of Alfaisal University, launched the newly designed website at a ceremony organized on the university campus.
Speaking on the occasion, Prince Khaled said: "The human capital is more important than anything else…the best effort is to help human development and help build vital educational projects.”
Prince Bandar bin Saud bin Khalid, the university's chief executive, was present during the website launching ceremony besides a large number of guests including university officials and faculty members.
"As the virtual window to the university, the website (www.alfaisal.edu) reflects Alfaisal’s true character and is simple to navigate,” said Faisal Al-Mubarak, provost of Alfaisal University. “With this website redesign and launch, we intend to improve both the front-end experience and back-end functionality of the site, making it easier and more enjoyable to learn all about the university."
He said Alfaisal’s new site has been designed to match the university’s position among academic institutions in Saudi Arabia and worldwide. "The visit of Prince Khaled to the university and the launch of the website show how important Alfaisal University is to him," said Al-Mubarak, adding Alfaisal is a student-centered community entirely committed to ensuring students have opportunities to succeed in their academic and civic endeavors.
Speaking on this occasion, Ahmed Al-Obaid, Alfaisal University's vice president for administrative and financial affairs, welcomed Prince Khaled.
"The patronage of the prince is an honor for the employees of the university. Prince Khaled's keen desire to support the university and his intimate involvement in the affairs of this institution indicate his love for education and for young Saudi students,” said Dr. Al-Obaid
