Student Activities Committees

Islamic Committee

The Islamic Committee aims to motivate students who are talented in the religious field to participate in ELI and KAU religious competitions, especially the two major Quran recitation and Sunnah competitions. The Islamic Committee helps students adhere to their Islamic principles and shun misconduct and bad habits. The Committee also offers many lectures, courses, and workshops on Islamic topics.

Social Committee

The Social Committee aims to activate the students’ social roles through several ELI on-campus programs. The Committee offers a series of year-round workshops and courses and provides a set of activities that allows students to develop their life skills, social relations, and sense of belonging.

Cultural Committee

The Cultural Committee offers several cultural programs and organizes various events and festivals. The Committee also aims to ensure that students have an authentic developmental cultural background outside of ELI. The Committee provides students with a variety of resources and helps improve the relationship between ELI students and faculty by acknowledging, understanding, and embracing different backgrounds and environments. This acceptance of cultural diversity helps students collaborate jointly and learn from others and from one another.

Sports Committee

The Sports Committee aims to inspire sportsmanship, instill a love of collective cooperation among students, and create a suitable atmosphere for competition among them. The Committee endeavors to encourage and raise students’ sports competence, competitiveness, and talents. The Committee is responsible for organizing all ELI sports activities through the formation of sports teams and arranging and hosting matches, competitions, and sports events.
