World Leaders Forum
Judson University is proud to present the sixth annual World Leaders Forum. This event brings World Leaders to the campus each year to ignite a flame of leadership for all who attend. All proceeds are donated to the Entrepreneurship Program Endowment Fund and Judson Student Scholarship Fund for educating tomorrow’s leaders. Together, we can build greatness.

Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan will be the keynote speaker for Judson University’s sixth annual World Leaders Forum. Queen Noor is a world-renowned advocate for cross-cultural understanding and conflict prevention and recovery issues such as refugees, missing persons, poverty, climate change, and disarmament.

Born to an Arab-American family, Queen Noor received a Bachelor of Arts degree in architecture and urban planning from Princeton University. She married His Majesty King Hussein bin Talal of Jordan in 1978. Her work in Jordan and the Arab world has focused on national and regional human security in the areas of education, sustainable development, human rights, and cross-cultural understanding. She founded and chairs the Noor Al Hussein and the King Hussein foundations, which have advanced thinking in the Middle East through pioneering best practice programs in the fields of poverty eradication, women’s empowerment, microfinance, health, and arts as a medium for social development and cross-cultural exchange.

In recognition of her efforts to advance development, democracy and peace, Queen Noor has received numerous awards and honorary doctorates in international relations, law, and humane letters. She is also the author of two books, Hussein of Jordan (2000) and Leap of Faith: Memoirs of an Unexpected Life (2003), a New York Times #1 best seller published in 17 languages.
