SQCC sent ten Middle East outreach professionals from universities and organizations around the US to Oman in January this year. While in Oman, the delegation met with senior Omani officials and representatives from the education sector. The trip included visits to important educational and cultural sites. In Muscat, the group toured Sultan Qaboos University, Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, Maarifa Library, Bait Al Zubair Museum, and the Royal Opera House. Excursions outside of the capital included visits to Nizwa fort and souq and the Sultan Qaboos College for Teaching Arabic to Non-Native Speakers. The study tour was topped off by an overnight camping adventure in the Wahiba Sands desert.
