Zayed University: A Great University for a Great Nation
Universities are fertile gardens of intellectual activity and innovation where ideas germinate and flourish in support of the common good. Through teaching, research and interface with industry and the larger community, faculty and students stimulate economic growth, scientific and social innovation, entrepreneurial activity, artistic expression and cultural understanding.
Zayed University has an essential role to play in the UAE, its strategic preeminence resting on:
• The Name- Named after His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan grants it a permanent place in the nation, the region and the World
• The Quality- Zayed University programs are built on a decade of graduate success and international recognition following its accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education in the United States.
• The Commitment to Community- has always been a part of Zayed University’s mission. In order to strengthen this mission, it has created The Institute for Community Engagement (I.C.E.) to be its outreach arm.
“I wish to stress the importance of this initiative that will serve the wider needs of the communities in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. We will strive to establish partnerships with government, with industry and with the public schools”
H.E. Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, President of Zayed University and UAE Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research
