His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah and President of the American University of Sharjah (AUS) affirmed that the University, after twenty-two years of outstanding service, occupies an advanced position among the universities of the region. He pointed out that this position would not have been achieved without the continuous contributions of the faculty and administrative staff and the Board of Trustees.
This came in a speech to His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah delivered this morning during his chairmanship of the meeting of the Board of Trustees of the American University in Sharjah.
After welcoming the Board of Trustees members, His Highness said that “we broke the rules in our region when we announced that the American University of Sharjah would be a joint higher education institution”.
The Ruler of Sharjah added that the list of graduates of the first batch of students at the American University included students from different countries and emirates. Among them was the role of Budour Saeed Al Raqbani, who excelled in her studies and is now a member of the Board of Trustees.
His Highness thanked the members of the Board of Trustees who have completed the membership conditions, those whose ideas contributed significantly to the Council's directive decisions during their years of service.
