Who are we?
Word of the head of the unit
Based on the academic scientific vision and the necessity of patriotism, we must set a framework for the concept of the university as an educational institution responsible for community service and public service programs, which is one of the responsibilities of the university. And that the term public service is parallel to the term community service, as it has no clear boundaries and its connotations have become dependent on the various areas of life through the establishment of programs and contents in the light of the criteria of the community’s needs and aspirations. Without this blessed service provided by universities, the universities would have become isolated from their societies. Emphasis must be placed on the role of the teaching staff in various disciplines to advance the real role of universities in society, otherwise the university will lose its pioneers who meet academic and social needs. In order for the university education to maintain its ability to solve the problems of society. As the work of the universities has become of increasing interest by integrating with these problems through developing plans based on research and applied work. We at Al-Zahraa (pbuh) University for women are proud of the efforts of the head of the university represented by the president of the university, Prof. Dr. Zainab Al-Mulla Al-Sultani, for the community services she provides on the medical, scientific, educational, counseling and humanitarian aspects. Where the Community Service Unit takes the responsibility of investing in the role of continuing education,applied research, dissemination of science and knowledge through courses and workshops offered to various community groups, in addition to counseling and social criticism, working to solve community problems, whether economic or social, and working earnestly within various targeted community activities.
