The establishment of the Department of Public Relations and Community Development came alongside with the establishment of the university in 1999. It was set out in order to reflect the objective and truthful civilized image of the Al-Hussein Bin Talal University. This department is the official voice of university and it is responsible for supervising the organization of the cultural and public relations with various organizations within and outside the country. The Department comprises three divisions: the Division of Cultural Relations and Media, the Public Relations Division and the Division office.


In order to highlight the brightest picture of the university, the Department seeks to achieve an advanced level of quality work on public relations at the level of media and cultural relations that is suitable for the modern age and the requirements of transparency and objectivity nationally and internationally.


 The Department is the focal point for public activities carried out by colleges and deanships, as it coordinates student activities and social activities through the organization of cultural programs, coordination of conferences, seminars, lectures, exhibitions and celebrations. It is also keen to give a true and bright image of the university through its Division of cultural relations and media by providing news agencies, newspapers and the media with news reports that highlight the activities of the university, in addition to feeding and updating the news section on the University website. The department edits and supervises the university printing press in order to clarify the University’s mission and objectives. It is also responsible for the overall appearance of the University.
