1) Attract top-tier Egyptian students to a progressive vertebrate paleontology graduate program;
2)Establish collaborations with professional vertebrate paleontologists around the world interested in expanding vertebrate paleontology education in Egypt;
3) Install a well-equipped laboratory and appropriately curated collection facilities so that researchers (students and faculty alike) can (a), conduct the necessary descriptive and comparative studies and (b), communicate the discoveries to wider paleontological and general public audiences;
4) Initiate vertebrate paleontological expeditions that will train the next generation of Egyptian vertebrate paleontologists (students and technicians) and considerably expand fossil vertebrate collections;
5) Povide valuable, and previously unavailable, teaching materials (theoretical and practical) to other universities and initiate outreach to primary/secondary level schools to facilitate expansion of the vertebrate paleontology science in Egypt; and finally
6) Raise funds and encourage students to volunteer in order to enhance the vertebrate paleontology department at the Egyptian Geological Museum.
