A yearly Charity Gala is organized by the UDAA in the month of Ramadan. Proceeds from this event are donated exclusively to the Alumni Association & Friends of the University of Dubai Scholarship Fund and all financial records are transparent, reviewed and held by the university until disbursement to scholarship recipients. The event is open to the entire UD community, including alumni, faculty, staff, administration and current students. Local businesses, philanthropies and individuals who support the Scholarship Fund will also be invited to attend.
Alumni use this opportunity to mingle and reconnect with classmates, faculty and staff. Attending alumni are encouraged to actively participate in several initiatives being launched by the Alumni Association in collaboration with the Alumni Relations Office. The University of Dubai takes this opportunity to share with alumni news about most recent accomplishment and new programs being offered by UD.
