Regarding this initiative, the President of UDST Dr. Salem Al Naemi that the IUSW is more than just a celebration of athleticism. UDST uses sports as a platform for the University community and the wider public to come together. It is part of every culture and a powerful tool to encourage positivity, performance and teamwork.

This a reflection of UDST’s commitment to health, wellness, and community engagement, and one of the reasons the university is a FISU Healthy Campus award winner. By bridging the gap between sport and academia, UDST aims to inspire future generations to adopt an active and healthy lifestyle, setting the precedent for post-secondary educational institutions in Qatar, Al Naemi added.
