Message from the Dean
The College of Education and Human Development at Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University is deeply rooted in a national vision, aiming to align with the goals outlined in the Kingdom Vision 2030. The college is committed to serving as the cornerstone for these aspirations, contributing to the development of the educational system and enhancing its efficiency. This includes meeting the demands of sustainable development, fostering life skills, aligning educational outcomes with the 21st-century labour market, and providing lifelong learning opportunities.
To realize a knowledge economy, the College of Education and Human Development actively supports creativity, innovation, and the optimal utilization of human resources.
The journey of the college has seen various growth and development stages. Initially established in 1390/1970 as the "College of Education," it became part of the Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University in 1427. In 1445, the college underwent restructuring, leading to its current name, "College of Education and Human Development." This change reflects the broader roles envisioned by both the country and the university, encompassing academic programs at various levels (B.A., diploma, postgraduate diploma, M.A.). The college's outreach extends to diverse segments of society, including educational leaders, employees, faculty members, and male and female teachers, through accredited short and medium-term training programs offering professional certificates.
In harmony with the vision and mission of Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University, and in alignment with the College's objectives, there is a resolute commitment to preparing female students with specialized knowledge, educational skills, and global competitiveness according to international standards. The faculty is dedicated to fostering a conducive educational environment, enabling female students to realize their goals, pursue professional ambitions, and engage in knowledge exchange. Additionally, the faculty emphasizes excellence in community responsibility and volunteer activities, encouraging students to participate in committees and activities that enhance their leadership, professional, and social abilities.
The College of Education and Human Development remains forward-looking, aspiring to further development and the attainment of national goals. This involves continuous improvements to its education system, nurturing human capabilities, and establishing itself as an accredited reference in research, training, academic programs, and community service.
In conclusion, the College of Education and Human Development takes pride in its decades-long achievements, serving as inspiration for continued and tireless efforts in societal, humanitarian, and scientific services.
