Meet the team

The Community Hub is the information hub of the KAUST community and also where you can meet the Community Development team!
Our team works with the community to develop a vibrant, active, and enjoyable community life for residents during their free time. We are here to support community members with initiatives, projects, activities, and clubs.

The CD team is made up of a diverse, multicultural, and multilingual group of people. The team members originally come from Europe, North America, South America, and Asia have lived in many countries around the world: Saudi Arabia, UK, Spain, USA, Dubai, Malaysia, South Korea, South Africa, Mozambique, Morocco, Australia, Ireland, Thailand and Venezuela, and speak a number of languages including Arabic, English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, German and Malay.

The team has extensive experience and expertise across a wide range of sectors, including Education, Strategic HR, Event Organization, Community volunteering, Public Health, Public Speaking, Strategic Marketing, Teaching & Sport Management, and Customer & Public Relations.
Between us, we have lived at KAUST for many years and have a good understanding of the cultural diversity of KAUST and the challenges that can sometimes be faced when settling into a new community away from home.

Our expertise and broad knowledge of the KAUST community means we can provide comprehensive support to our community to ensure they feel engaged and involved.
If you would like to learn more about your community, find out information, or get support for a community-driven initiative, project, event or club, please get in touch… we're here to help.
