Deanship of Educational Services

Dean's Message

The Deanship of Educational Services is the bedrock of foundational and general education at the university. It endeavors to nurture well-rounded, skillful, and disciplined students who take pride in being PSU students and later alumni/alumnae. Our Deanship is the gate through which new students enter into the university, and the foundation on which they continue to develop and grow over the years they spend in their respective colleges.

For more than 17 years, the Deanship of Educational Services has been serving the PSU community with its core programs and diverse services. It offers a wide range of programs and learning opportunities that combine in a unique way that both develop our students’ knowledge and skills.

Since the Deanship primary role is to groom and prepare students to meet the demands of academic life, it emphasizes student learning, self-discipline and commitment. We take student learning seriously and expect students to take their learning seriously as well.

The range of our academic programs and courses is impressive. We offer courses in a good number of areas such as English, Arabic and Islamic studies, math, physics, statistics, psychology, and physical development. Our object is to create a balance in student life and experience by nurturing the mind, body, and spirit.

Summing things up, the Deanship of Educational Services mission is to lay the foundation in higher education, encourage research and promote community service. We plan to improve the services that we offer to our students, faculty and the community at large. This ambitious goal will be achieved by team work, commitment, self-development, and responsibility.
