NYUAD Athletics Mission Statement

Educators: We recognize and embrace our impact on the student learning process and aim to complement the education that takes place in the university’s academic classrooms with experiential learning that inspires and develops the whole person through competition, physical education and recreation.

Mentors: We develop leaders and teach values consistent with those of the university through working collaboratively to reach goals, embracing the diversity of thought and culture, persevering through failure, and competing with integrity.

Facilitators: We value inclusive and meaningful relationships and understand that relationship building is the foundation of a more peaceful world. In addition to facilitating personal relationships, we facilitate institutional relationships by being embedded in the fabric of the UAE through sharing our knowledge, resources, and skills.
