Summary

Prince Sultan University is fully committed to good health and wellbeing. This is clearly reflected on different fronts. On the research front, the university faculty members produce quality research on health issues from different perspectives, particularly computer science and engineering. Additionally, PSU has formed collaborations with local and global health institutions. For example, the university’s prosthetics centre collaborates with Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Humanitarian City in Saudi Arabia and Nia Technologies Incorporation in Canada. The university also pays great attention to the health of its students and staff through a number of policies and services, such as a smoke-free policy, the provision of mental health support through the counselling offices at both the male and female campuses and the arrangement of campus visits by different hospitals and health centres to raise awareness of important health issues, such as diabetes, breast cancer, drug abuse, etc. The university extends its services to the local community to improve health and well-being through different strategies, including arranging blood donation campaigns, paying visits to hospitals and schools by outreach committees, holding mental health awareness sessions by the Psychology Club and providing sports training by the physical education clubs. The university makes its sports facilities, including swimming pools, basketball and volleyball courts and football pitches, accessible to the local community in pre-scheduled programs.
