UOWD’s Silver Jubilee celebrated the University’s achievement of delivering 25 years of academic excellence in the UAE. This accomplishment embodies three interconnected themes on which the University has built its reputation and will continue to take forward as it advances into the future.
A pioneer in the field of higher education, the University has already established a reputation for innovation leadership. From the modernisation of administrative processes and the advancement of student support systems, to the adoption of transformation teaching methods and the pursuit of cutting edge research, the quest for continuous innovation is the cornerstone of our plans for the future.
Education is empowering in itself, yet at UOWD our goal is to inspire students to take ownership of their own learning experience, to help them become more effective professional practitioners and committed global citizens. Our commitment to empowerment also extends beyond the University, as we engage with wider society to empower businesses and community organisations through collaboration and knowledge exchange that will impact across all of our futures.
Over the past 25 years UOWD has been on its own transformational journey, and in doing so, has transformed the lives of many individuals; students, faculty and staff. In an ever-changing world, we look at how our passion for innovation and commitment to empowerment will help us to stay true to our vision to transform people’s lives through excellence in teaching, research and engagement.
