Jordanian Prince Visits UC San Diego

In his first-ever visit to San Diego, His Royal Highness (HRH) Prince Mired Raad Zeid Al-Hussein of Jordan spent time on the UC San Diego campus to learn about the range of our research, education and public service.  Over the course of two days, he met with several faculty members and campus leaders, including Chancellor Khosla.  His visit to campus included stops at the Moores Cancer Center and the Center of Interdisciplinary Science for Art, Architecture and Archaeology (CISA3), and he attended a Global Health Initiative sponsored symposium.

HRH Prince Al-Hussein was officially welcomed to San Diego upon his arrival last week at a gala hosted by a Southern California non-profit humanitarian organization focused on the Middle East.  HRH has spent a large part of his post-military career supporting humanitarian and charitable causes.  At the gala, Mayor Bob Filner presented HRH with the key to the City of San Diego.
