Allowed to help my own blog, in this occasion I’ll demonstrate in relation to keyword. And now, this is the 1st photograph:
DOHA, Qatar — Northwestern University came actuality to advise journalism and communication, a boxy appointment in a country with bound controls on accessible speech. It was the latest in a alternation of celebrated U.S. universities the affluent emirate absorbed to a awe-inspiring circuitous on the desert’s edge, alleged Apprenticeship City.
Terms were generous: Bookish abandon guaranteed, world-class facilities, costs absolutely covered. All Northwestern had to do was anatomy a affairs on par with those at its home campus alfresco Chicago, and accolade degrees actuality address its name.
“It was a acceptable deal,” said Everette E. Dennis, Northwestern’s administrator in Qatar. “No banking risk. The alone accident was reputational.” A university home to the acclaimed Medill Academy of Journalism would not appetite to lower standards to amuse the whims of sheikhs 7,000 afar from Lake Michigan.
Cornell, Carnegie Mellon, Georgetown, Texas A&M and Virginia Commonwealth universities all addled the aforementioned arrangement with Qatari leaders. A foundation the cardinal ancestors created has spent billions of dollars over 15 years — the six U.S. branches accept a complete outlay of added than $320 million anniversary year — to acceptation aristocratic college apprenticeship in specialties from anesthetic to adopted service, engineering to accomplished arts, enabling Qataris to access coveted U.S. degrees afterwards abrogation the Persian Gulf.
“The abstraction of accepting an Ivy League apprenticeship in the abundance of your own home?” said Ahmed Al-Qahtani, 24, an ambitious ophthalmologist and third-year apprentice at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar. “All I can say is, accede you, your Highness, for everything.”
U.S. colleges and universities run dozens of annex campuses about the world, absorption accelerated globalization in academia. Apprenticeship City is conceivably the best arresting archetype of this trend, alms an optimistic eyes of amusing advance in the Middle East at a time of all-around affair about war in Syria and the Islamic State’s role in terrorism.
But the Doha experiment, financed with abundance from accustomed gas and oil exports, additionally is a huge gamble.
Qatar, a nation of 2.2 million on the Arabian peninsula, faces the ambiguity of what Western article could absolve in a culturally conservative, predominantly Muslim association that takes Islamic law seriously. While U.S. universities award-winning complete anticipation and chargeless speech, Qatar’s absolution wields about complete ability in a nation with few forums for political dissent.
The universities face the accident that their admirable brands could be attenuated if their Qatar operations abatement abbreviate of U.S. standards. They additionally charge avert a adventure that ties them to a administration with abundant critics.
Soccer admirers admiration whether bribery helped Qatar acreage the Apple Cup in 2022. Israel advocates catechism Qatari access to the Palestinian Hamas administration in Gaza. Human rights monitors corruption the imprisonment of a Qatari poet, Mohammed al-’Ajami, for overextension ballad accounted alienated and calumniating to the emir.
University leaders accede challenges.
“We are present in a actual circuitous context, a circuitous region,” Georgetown Admiral John J. DeGioia said. The university “carefully and absolutely examined” whether the adventure would accommodation its “core moral values” afore accordant in 2005 to alpha a annex actuality of its Academy of Adopted Service, he said. That annex is entering its additional decade, and DeGioia said he charcoal assertive that Georgetown fabricated the appropriate decision.
“Being affianced is bigger than not,” he said. “We are contributing, I think, to architecture a accustomed acceptable in the region.”
Exporting U.S. college apprenticeship across has continued fatigued concerns, and able-bodied above Qatar. U.S. university branches accept been accused of benefiting from casual activity corruption in Abu Dhabi and accouterment disproportionate angary to backbreaking regimes in China and Singapore.
Harry R. Lewis, a computer scientist and above administrator of Harvard College, said he worries about attempts to carbon the American bookish acquaintance in societies area Western ethics may not be as strong.
“It’s like aggravating to aces up French grapevines and bulb them in Idaho or somewhere,” Lewis said. “It ability work. But the clay altitude and the ablaze altitude are different. Those things absolutely matter.”
Independent aback 1971, Qatar lies amid bounded admiral Saudi Arabia and Iran. Afore the analysis of oil, its abridgement depended on fishing and fair diving. Now one of the world’s wealthiest countries, Qatar is basic to the United States as a date for aggressive operations. Aboriginal adult Michelle Obama visited Al Udeid Air Base alfresco Doha in November to appearance abutment for U.S. troops.
Obama additionally met in Apprenticeship City with Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, mother of Qatar Absolutist Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. Chair of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Association Development, the sheikha has been the active force abaft the college apprenticeship project.
Mindful that gas and oil affluence will not aftermost forever, Sheikha Moza said she wants Apprenticeship City to activate a alteration to a “knowledge-based” economy.
“Bringing these bookish programs actuality was not aloof for the account of the programs,” she said in chatty English in an account at the Qatar Civic Convention Center. “We brought them actuality to drag all aspects of our society” — including, she said, economics and politics. “We capital our citizens to be mentally open. We capital them to be analytical thinkers, to accept a pale in the country.”
How abundant analytical cerebration Qatar is accommodating to breeding charcoal a catechism as letters of censorship appear from time to time. Author Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar, who has accomplished English actuality for VCU, Northwestern and Georgetown, said her atypical “Love Comes Later” was banned aftermost year with little explanation.
“I’m afraid to apprehend that,” Sheikha Moza said of the incident. The sheikha said amusing media is rapidly authoritative censorship an “outdated” issue. She additionally said she already alone intervened to chargeless up a book addition to Apprenticeship City that was ashore in customs. “They gave us a cardboard to sign,” she said.

Engage and think
This fall, about 2,000 acceptance are enrolled actuality in U.S. universities. About all of them activated and were accustomed beeline into the six branches. Universities assert the cardinal ancestors and added affecting bodies get no appropriate treatment.
Of 361 applicants to Georgetown in Qatar this year, 179 were accepted. The acceptance amount of 50 percent compares with 17 percent for Georgetown in Washington. Charge is the same: about $48,000 a year. All Qatari acceptance accept charge grants from their government, Georgetown said. Abounding non-Qatari acceptance accept loans.
The aboriginal Catholic university in the United States, Georgetown maintains its Jesuit character in Doha. One afternoon in November, theologian Akintunde E. Akinade led a altercation of Judaism in a appropriate chic alleged “The Botheration of God.” Akinade and his acceptance wrestled with the Ten Commandments, Psalm 91 — “the Lord is my refuge” — and Elie Wiesel’s Holocaust account “Night.”
“This is not a church,” said Akinade, an Anglican abbot from Nigeria. “This is not a mosque. We’re not actuality to deliver to you. We’re actuality to appoint you, to accomplish you anticipate as a scholar.”
The Georgetown campus, like the others, is acutely international, with acceptance from Oman, Mexico, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and more. Abounding accept the askew activity belief of the departer majority in Qatar.
Israa Al-Kamali, 20, a junior, came actuality from Baghdad with her ancestors afore the 2003 U.S. aggression of Iraq. She activated to universities in Apprenticeship City and the United Kingdom, allotment Georgetown in Doha for its diversity, area and baby chic size. The student-faculty arrangement actuality is 5 to 1. On the Washington campus alleged the Hilltop, it is 11 to 1.
After graduation she wants to assignment on “saving and animating culture,” Al-Kamali said. She worries about what the Islamic Accompaniment is accomplishing to her built-in country, ravaged by war for abundant of her life. “The age-old ability is beneath threat,” she said. “Museums are beneath threat.”
Students actuality say they accept complete abandon of expression. “Never a problem,” said Abdullah Ahmad, 22, a chief from Pakistan. “We booty abundant pride in it.”
Ahmad said he was fatigued by acceptable banking aid and the calibration of ambitions: Apprenticeship City is composed of deluxe edifices of angled bean and glass, with trickling fountains and approach trees. Northwestern’s new architecture is encased in amber travertine limestone from Turkey.
“Everything is so admirable here,” Ahmad said. “Nothing can be medium. Aggregate has to angle out.”
‘A continued way’
Education City was about an action of the University of Virginia. In 1998, the Qatar Foundation launched talks with U-Va. to alpha a annex in engineering, advanced arts, business and medicine. The accompaniment assembly and governor encouraged acceding the Virginia flagship at a all-around crossroads.
But the U-Va. administering lath alone the plan in 1999. “A above disappointment,” recalled John T. Casteen III, U-Va.’s admiral at the time. He said some on the lath seemed anxious about bookish freedom. “I bethink actuality told it was aloof a continued way from Virginia.”
Undeterred, the foundation wooed added U.S. universities. The advance came in 2001, aback Cornell agreed to authorize a medical school, Qatar’s first, with a appear affiance of $750 million in abutment over a decade.
Hunter R. Rawlings III, Cornell’s admiral at the time, said the university’s motive was idealistic.
“Part of our cerebration was, best American captivation in the Middle East has to do with accoutrements and oil,” recalled Rawlings, now admiral of the Association of American Universities. “This activity seems to accept to do with anesthetic and education. It’s such a altered message. Why don’t we try it?”
Others followed. Texas A&M agreed to advise engineering; Carnegie Mellon, business and computer science. VCU, which had run an arts and architecture affairs actuality aback 1998, active a 10-year deal. Then came Georgetown and, in 2008, Northwestern.
The six U.S. schools accept awarded added than 2,250 degrees here. Graduates accept confused into arresting alum schools and positions in government, clandestine industry, hospitals and the Doha-based Arab account aperture Al Jazeera.
The acceleration of Apprenticeship City additionally benefited adolescent women from Muslim families whose parents afraid about sending them abroad. Added than 40 percent of Texas A&M’s acceptance actuality are female, a abundant beyond allotment than begin in abounding U.S. engineering programs. Meera Abu Soufah, 20, the apprentice anatomy president, an ambitious actinic engineer, said her acquaintance “really shows the Aggie spirit.”
Many capacity about operations of Apprenticeship City are buried in secrecy. Mohamad Fathy Saoud, a above foundation president, said “a few billion dollars” were spent on facilities. The complete anniversary outlay for the six branches is added than $320 million, according to abstracts from U.S. apprenticeship and tax annal and university officials. In 2014, the foundation provided Northwestern $45.3 million, Georgetown $59.5 million and Cornell $121.7 million for Qatar activities, according to admiral and U.S. records.
The four clandestine universities beneath to absolution their affairs with the foundation. But VCU appear its arrangement to The Washington Post because it is a accessible record. (A Post appeal for Texas A&M’s arrangement beneath accompaniment accessible annal law is pending.)
VCU’s additional 10-year acceding with the foundation took aftereffect in July 2012. It stipulates that VCU in Qatar, or VCUQ, shall accept the “same standards of affection for faculty, staff, acceptance and curricula” that are maintained at the capital campus in Richmond; that VCU will ascendancy hiring and admissions; that the VCUQ administrator letters to university admiral in the United States; and that VCUQ “shall not discriminate on the base of race, color, religion, civic origin, or sex, and shall not abbreviate the rights of abandon of accent or religion.”
The acceding additionally states that “admission antecedence shall be accustomed to able Qatari citizens” and that adroitness and agents “shall participate in an all-encompassing acclimatization affairs in Doha” on the “respective cultures” in Qatar and at the university. The acceding gives the foundation ability to accept anniversary budgets.
The estimated operating account for VCUQ in budgetary 2013 was $39.5 million, with charge and fees bartering $9.2 million and the foundation the rest. The complete included a administration fee to VCU of added than $3.6 million.
At no amount to Virginia taxpayers, the accord gave the accompaniment university all-around cachet. Afterwards VCUQ, “would VCU be as able-bodied accepted about the apple as it has become?” university Admiral Michael Rao asked. “I don’t know. I accept to say I actively agnosticism that.”
Student activity is conceivably quieter actuality than in the States. Alcohol is scarce, admiral say, fraternities and sororities unknown. Universities action freshmen some only-in-Doha activities: a scavenger coursing at the acclaimed Souq Waqif market, a dhow cruise on the abysm with classmates. There are apprentice clubs and sports such as soccer, candid and basketball.
One night a thudding soundtrack of assumption and drums abounding a VCUQ anteroom at a pep assemblage abutting to a tented and carpeted lounge accepted as a majlis. Acceptance visiting from Richmond circled up with aeon actuality to advise them to jump, applause and bawl what VCU calls its “War Chant.” Then admirers and players agitated alfresco for a disorderly advance to the apprentice centermost for VCU’s bold adjoin Texas A&M in women’s basketball.
Rams vs. Aggies, dueling in Doha. On added nights the rivals ability be Tartans, Hoyas, Wildcats or the Big Red.
Fitrya Amanda, 19, a inferior on the team, wore a atramentous headscarf forth with her atramentous and gold uniform, #23, and VCU stickers on her cheeks. Born in Indonesia, she grew up in Doha and is advancing a bachelor’s amount in accomplished arts aback she’s not cutting hoops. Amanda plays a beat position, advanced and aback court.
“We accede ourselves Rams,” she said. “We adulation actuality Rams.”
Steven Pagach, 20, a inferior from Fairfax County who plays trumpet in the Richmond pep band, marveled at the scene. “This is an absurd experience,” he said during his visit. “It’s aloof really, absolutely air-conditioned to see they adulation VCU as abundant as we do.”
Faculty associates at Apprenticeship City are a all-around lot. Some appear from the States for a concise gig, are afraid at how abundant they like it, and break years. Others are assassin locally. Carnegie Mellon’s administrator in Qatar, Ilker Baybars, alleged adroitness recruiting “the best difficult allotment of my job.” It is adamantine to actuate tenured advisers to barter activity on a alive American campus for Doha, area the bookish association is baby and the acclimate ranges from affable to sweltering. Schools sometimes action U.S. adroitness a bacon exceptional of 25 percent, and acceptable apartment arrangements. Qatar additionally dangles analysis allotment as an incentive.
Faculty associates and deans at all six branches said they accept complete bookish freedom. That doesn’t beggarly there are no compromises.
VCUQ won’t use nude models to advise art, in acquiescence to cultural norms. Nathan Davies, an abettor assistant at VCUQ, showed a anchorman an art book from the campus accumulating in which addition had placed brownish band over portions of nude anatomy images in an credible accomplishment to accomplish a accepted of modesty. But Davies said such incidents can be absolute because they activate debate.
“I’m actuality because account still amount here,” Davies said. “Ideas amount so abundant actuality that bodies get passionate, and they argue.”
Northwestern’s adroitness and acceptance face appropriate challenges in a association afterwards Aboriginal Amendment aegis for media. Acceptance told of actuality addled or abashed aback they approved to booty photographs or video of scenes advised accepted in the United States, such as an exoteric appearance of a accessible hospital or TV station.
Mary Dedinsky, a above managing editor of the Chicago Sun-Times who directs the Northwestern journalism affairs here, said acceptance hone abilities by advantageous obstacles in following of a story. She cited one accumulation of acceptance who approved to betrayal calm corruption of Filipino maids. They waited several canicule alfresco a apartment that banned to let them in.
“We told them, ‘You’ve got to be persistent,’ ” Dedinsky said. “ ‘You can’t accord up.’ ” Finally the acceptance approved addition tactic, bringing a mother with them to ask permission for entry. They got in.
