IAB Meetings

IAB meetings are held biannually. One meeting is held on KAU's home campus in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, while the other is held at an international location on the university campus of a board member based outside the Kingdom. Each meeting

has a maximum duration of three days. Figure 4a–c show the IAB members during meeting sessions.

The principal point of contact between the university and the IAB members is via the Vice-President for Graduate Studies and Research, who acts as Board Secretary General. In most meetings, all KAU Vice-Presidents and selected KAU faculty members (non-permanent board members) are invited to attend and participate, so as to ensure the creation and maintenance of close links between the IAB members and the management team responsible for the operational oversight and day-to-day running of the university. The selection of non-permanent board members for invitation depends on the specialization and main theme of the meeting's discussion and deliberations.

Since the establishment of the KAU IAB, seven meetings have been held to date as detailed in the following table, while the agenda of the sixth meeting is presented in the Appendix:
