The leaders of the United Arab Emirates seek to promote a culture of excellence throughout the country. In line with this vision the United Arab Emirates University works tirelessly to adopt the best practices in higher education and to further this culture of excellence. As a result the United Arab Emirates University has launched the “Chancellor’s Award for Institutional Excellence” to encourage and recognize the efforts of members of the university community and as part of its institutional development scheme. This award is in its first cycle and contains three major categories. They are the Distinguished Department Category, Distinguished Team Category and the Career Excellence Category.
The award is primarily aimed at improving institutional mechanisms, creating a spirit of competition between sectors and departments, developing and building the capacities of employees and establishing the best management practices and provision of services. The award also aims to raise awareness of a culture of excellence, quality assurance and transparency and to make this a major component of the university work environment. This award can also be considered towards the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Government Excellence Award.
