Build strategic alliances with our national, regional and international communities to support innovation in educational, social, cultural and economic development 

We believe that working in partnerships makes us stronger and helps build equitable communities that work for a common purpose. Universities are important drivers of change and provide a valuable meeting place for people across civic society. The University is an anchor institution in the region and we understand our corporate and social responsibility to work in partnership with a range of agencies to develop a fully integrated university-city. The international reach of the University will support an enhanced role in the growth of North Al Batinah. We will also encourage staff and students to be involved with locally based organisations to embed public benefit into the life of the University.
