NU-Q's Class of 2020 'largest in its history'.

Ellis Cose

Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q) is welcoming the largest class it has enrolled since establishing a campus in Doha, with a week-long orientation session.

The event will conclude with a convocation address on August 21, titled "How Do You Want to Be Remembered?' delivered by Ellis Cose, an author, journalist, commentator, and educator of considerable distinction.

"His visit is fortuitous for us, not only to help launch our latest class with a presentation, but also by dint of his knowledge and intelligence on matters of class and race at a time of great upheaval in the US and wider world," said dean and CEO Everette E Dennis. "I can't think of a better way to open the academic semester."

"As we prepare to move into our new building in Education City, we are better positioned to welcome additional students. Our new home will be a setting where the ever-changing nature of media can be dissected, studied, and understood," Dennis noted.

A longtime columnist and contributing editor for Newsweek magazine, Cose is a former editorial page editor of the New York Daily News and has also been a contributing editor and press critic for Time magazine.

A Chicago native, he has a master's degree in Science, Technology and Public Policy from George Washington University.

Cose will be delivering his address at the Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar building in Education City.
