“ALHOSN University is a conglomerate of various nationalities, cultures, and ethnicities, and yet we all move towards the same goals of excellence and social responsibility. Instead of posing barriers, our multicultural atmosphere serves as an inspiration for tolerance, teamwork, and respect. These very same unifying values have helped the UAE achieve 40 years of economic and social prosperity. Our International Day sends out an important message to our community that we value the strengths, characteristics and potentials of each individual regardless of race or background,” said Prof. Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor and CEO, ALHOSN University.
