Community Engagement


Community engagement is central to ADUC’s Mission, and the Strategic Plan developed by ADUC includes outreach activities as one of its strategic priorities.

Community Engagement and Outreach activities primary goals at ADUC are to: 

  1. Build partnerships with the Business community to benefit ADUC students and Alumni by providing out-of-classroom learning experience, internship, and employment opportunities. 
  2. Establish mutually beneficial relationships with the corporate world and the academic community to enhance the scope, depth, and relevance of the ADUC curriculum by exchanging ideas and knowledge, interaction with practitioners, and collaboration in scholarship. 
  3. Contribute to the community by actively engaging in cultural, social, and humanitarian initiatives and public dialogue on major contemporary societal issues. 


ADUC reaches out to the community through three sets of initiatives. 


ADUC will reach out to the business community by engaging in collaborative agreements with partner companies and organizations for practical research and case study development. It will also support corporate participation in course delivery at ADUC by inviting the business community members as guest lecturers and participants in round-table discussions and seminars. Besides, it will provide continuing education opportunities to members of the business community in various professional development fields. On another aspect, it will expand the internship and Company Project programs and employment opportunities for students. Finally, it will secure industry expertise for curriculum development through the participation of professionals from the industry in ADUC Advisory Board. 


With regards to civil society, ADUC will encourage and support student’s active participation and contributions to volunteer work in humanitarian fields and public service. Furthermore, it will organize public lectures, conferences, and round table discussions on general topics of interest to the community in general. Additionally, ADUC will organize in partnership with other Colleges and Universities sports and cultural events. Lastly, we will develop out-of-classroom experiences and interactions with the community. 


ADUC will reach out to the academic community by hosting professional workshops, conferences, and round-table discussions where Faculty can exchange ideas and undertake joint research activities with their colleagues from the UAE and abroad. It will also partner with foreign institutions of higher education to promote students and Faculty’s exchange to enhance cultural awareness and understanding. Another point is to establish partnerships with national and international universities to develop collaboration in research and encourage joint research projects. Moreover, we will reach out to the academic community by participating in industry associations and professional organizations to enhance knowledge.
