An Hour of Reading at NYU Abu Dhabi
A group of NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) students, staff, and faculty came together at the NYUAD Library on Tuesday, March 27 at 11am to participate in the UAE government initiative UAE Reading Hour.
The NYUAD library provided the community with a wide array of books for their perusal, and ended the event with a raffle for a voucher from the campus bookstore.
As the first of its kind in the Arab world, UAE Reading Hour is a celebration of reading that aligns with the UAE’s Month of Reading in March of every year. It is among the numerous initiatives created to inspire reading among the UAE community and ingrain the values of reading that supports the vision of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

NYU's agreement with the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to create NYU Abu Dhabi is the outcome of a shared understanding of the essential roles and challenges of higher education in the 21st century: a common belief in the value of a liberal arts education, concurrence on the benefits a research university brings to the society that sustains it, a conviction that interaction with new ideas and people who are different is valuable and necessary, and a commitment to educating students who are true citizens of the world.
