Qatar's Emir visits NU-Q

His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani is the eighth and current Emir of Qatar.

His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani visited Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) on Sunday in connection with an interview being conducted by the acclaimed broadcaster Charlie Rose for the CBS program 60 Minutes. 

The interview, which began in a car driven by the Emir, continued when they arrived at NU-Q where they were met by students, faculty, and staff. Accompanied by Rose and the CBS film crew, the Emir toured the building, including the Newsroom, which just opened last week. The Emir’s interview with Rose marks the first professional broadcast interview conducted in the new Newsroom. 

During his visit, His Highness also took the opportunity to talk with students, faculty, and staff who shared their thoughts on the new building, the programs offered, and their future aspirations and ambitions as the CBS team filmed the encounters.
