ALHOSN University, a leading Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to high-quality and value-based education, will be hosting a Gala Dinner today (Sunday, February 28, 2010) to celebrate its 5th anniversary. The event will be held at the Beach Rotana Hotel in Abu Dhabi and will be preceded by a media appreciation session at ALHOSN’s Male Campus.
During the dinner, ALHOSN will reaffirm its commitment to address the needs of society, raise awareness on critical environmental issues, and maintain its leadership in the educational field. Employees who have significantly contributed to the achievement of ALHOSN’s goals will also be honored. Prominent Arab media personality Mrs. Nashwa Al Ruwaini, CEO & Board Member of Pyramedia, and Former Executive Director and Current Board Member of The Middle East International Film Festival, has been invited as a guest speaker. Mrs. Ruwani has been included among the “30 Awesome Women” list published by the Arabian Woman Magazine. The Gala Dinner’s program will also include a raffle draw and a drum show.
To be held under the theme “5 Years: Promoting Excellence”, the special gathering will outline ALHOSN’s major achievements, such as partnerships with distinguished organizations such as the UAE Society of Engineers and the 7i Institute, expansion of national and international presence through active participation in high-profile events such as the Najah educational expo, GETEX Dubai, and the international conference organized by the Illinois Institute of Technology Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, and promotion of women’s broader participation in technical fields through events such as the First Annual Women in Engineering Event in the UAE.
“We would not have attained this level of success in a span of five years if not for the hard work and commitment of our community members, our dedicated staff and professors, and our visionary management. Our students are at the core of our motivation, and so I would like to acknowledge their inspirational role as well. I would also like to extend the University’s gratitude to our partner organizations, the media, the local government especially the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, and the public. You are all in our thoughts as we celebrate our fifth year,” said Dr. Abdul Rahim Sabouni, Vice Chancellor of ALHOSN University.

The university upholds its philosophy of ‘Global Knowledge with Local Vision’ throughout its three faculties. ALHOSN’s eleven undergraduate and seven graduate programs are accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and are open to students of all nationalities.
