In the presence of the founder of the Islamic University, his Eminence Sayyid Sadr Al-Din Al-Qabbanji, the Council of the Islamic University held its regular meeting. As part of the first point of the meeting, the university was thanked for participating in the solidarity march launched in Najaf to defend Al-Aqsa and the Palestinian occupied territories. By doing so, the university has shown its concern for the nation.
The council then discussed a number of important issues that contribute to the university’s development and academic success. As a major issue, the university’s future strategic plan was approved, which included establishing new colleges and departments in its center in Najaf, as well as in its branches in Babylon and Qadisiyah. Several scientific, administrative, and student buildings and facilities have also been approved for Najaf, Babylon, and Qadisiyah as part of the reconstruction plan. Furthermore, the council discussed supporting scientific research; allocating a reward to researchers; developing scientific laboratories; and providing them with the latest equipment and means to conduct experiments and research.
