UPEI President and Vice-Chancellor Alaa Abd-El-Aziz joined members of the University community on Wednesday as they gathered at the Chaplaincy Centre to wish Saudi Arabian students well as they prepare to return home.

Earlier this month, the Saudi Arabian government issued an order to all of its citizens studying in Canada that they must return home. UPEI’s International Student Office, Student Affairs, Office of the Registrar, and Chaplaincy Centre along with the UPEI Student Union have been supporting students as they prepare to leave campus.

In the 2018 winter semester, there were 49 students from Saudi Arabia registered at UPEI.
