Appointment and Promotion of Academic Staff at Kuwait University

Auther : Mobark Al-Obadi

Perhaps, Kuwait University is the only university, which was established with no national academic staff. All staff members were recruited from various universities in the region. In 1966, the number of the academic staff was 31 but now it reaches up to 720. In the year of establishment most of the academic staff were appointed through secondment system which exist between Arabic universities, but after 1970, Kuwait university started advertising its needs in the press and had the chance to select its requirements among several hundred applicants and contracted with them personally. This method has resulted in creating a composition structure in academic staff. Now there are 25 different nationalities working in various faculties of the university. This type of structure has its own effect in conducting and functioning of the academic staff at various levels ands; a result of that many changes and modifications has been set up during the last 10 years. Moreover, this structure has also negative effect in uncertainty of many decisions and rules. The University of Kuwait, for example, has changed its rules of appointment and promotion several times during the last fifteen years. Kuwaiti members of staff are few, only 25% of the total 720 are Kuwaitis. Those being obtained through various means, one of them is to send the graduated intelligent students abroad to different universities especially in Europe and USA, through sgolarship system. Most Kuwaiti staff members are getting their PhD. through this way and few percent are obtained by means of postgraduates studies at Kuwait University.
