Dr. Imad Abu Kishek is the 4th President of Al-Quds University (AQU) and a Professor of Public Policy. He was elected President of AQU in 2014. Previously, Professor Abu Kishek was a member of AQU’s senior leadership since 1999, serving as the Vice President for Administrative and Financial Affairs (1999-2011), and as the University’s Executive Vice President (2011 – 2014).

Under Professor Abu Kishek’s leadership, AQU saw the introduction of several academic programs that remain unique to the entire Middle East region. He also led the expansion of the University’s campus within and around the Old City of Jerusalem, in addition to the establishment of several successful programs that seek, inter alia, to align the learning outcomes with the needs of the society. Professor Abu Kishek is also leading several initiatives that seek to foster an ecosystem conducive for social innovation and entrepreneurship among AQU students and the Palestinian youth more broadly. The Al-Quds Center for Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship is one example of such initiatives.

Under Professor Abu Kishek’s presidency, AQU has broadened its international cooperation with universities and institutions of higher education from across the globe.

Those efforts have led to the conclusion of various partnerships and cooperation agreements, which culminated in the establishment of several joint centers and research initiatives. Examples of such programs include the Confucius Institute, the Indian Center of Excellence, the Al-Quds Academy for Global Justice (in partnership with former ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo), and the Competitiveness Initiative (as a result of a cooperation agreement with Harvard).

Professor Abu Kishek is the representative of the presidents of Palestinian universities at COMSATS. He is also the elected representative of Palestinian universities in the Federation of Universities in the Islamic World. In addition, Professor Abu Kishek is a board member of several regional and international institutions such as the Jerusalem Endowment, the Al-Quds Academy for Scientific Research, the Palestinian Anti-Corruption Commission, and the National Palestinian Academy for Administration. He is also a member of the Palestine National Council, and the Council for Waqf and Islamic Affairs and Holy Sites.

Professor Abu Kishek holds a PhD in Public Policy from Northeastern University, and a Bachelor of Engineering from Al-Quds University.
