HH Shaikh Rashid Bin Hamdan Al-Maktoum

HH Shaikh Rashid Bin Hamdan Al-Maktoum succeeds his father HH Shaikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, who died earlier this year and was the driving force for the establishment of the College in Dundee 20 years ago. His vision was that multiculturalism and education should be at the heart of the College. Shaikh Rashid, who is also Chairman of the Al-Maktoum Foundation’s Board of Trustees, said he was looking forward to his new role with the College and to continuing his father’s commitments in Scotland.

“The Al-Maktoum College was very close to my father’s heart and my role as its Patron will be to ensure his aims for the College are carried on and developed in every possible way,” he said.

“I believe we can build on his legacy and promote further education, intellectual exchange, greater dialogue and understanding across people, cultures, and communities, particularly between the Arab and Muslim worlds and the West.”
