Program for Strategic Research and Studies

Message from Co-Chairs

Welcome to the Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Program for Strategic Research and Studies (PMBF Program) at the University of Central Florida (UCF). This collaboration between UCF and Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University in Saudi Arabia was established in 2012. The two institutions are committed to scholarship, partnership, leadership, innovation, outreach, responsiveness to their surrounding communities, and research that has impact and is oriented toward solutions.

The PMBF Program is designed to advance public knowledge and awareness about issues of interest to both cultures. It uses an interdisciplinary approach and directs its efforts to the following subjects:

  • Bilateral relations
  • Security
  • Culture
  • Economy

The PMBF Program highlights these subjects through public presentations featuring distinguished visitors; an annual forum; scholarly and research activities; the exchange of scholars, practitioners and students; fellowships; and course development.

Inquiries are always welcome. Please visit us at Howard Phillips Hall 202, telephone us at 407-823-2510 or contact us via e-mail at Kinda.Haddad@ucf.edu.
