The initial thought was brought to Dr. Salah in 1997 by Eng. Sarkawt Ibrahim (from Erbil) who worked with Dr. Salah as assistant in Florida State University. Eng. Sarkawt bought of Dr. Salah the importance of starting higher education in Kurdistan, according to the International Standards.
The idea grew into a real thought and plan in 2006-7 when Dr. Salah witnessed the role of private universities in Jordan while he was a senior Fulbright Scholar.
During his visit to Erbil, Dr. Salah passed his plan to the education committee and Dr. Idris Hadi the Minister of Higher Education of Kurdistan.
The Minister and Committee supported the idea and encouraged Dr. Salah to start the proposal.
