With a 45-year legacy of leadership and innovation in higher education, Union Institute and University offers undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degree programs grounded in real-life application, designed to prepare our graduates to effect change on a regional, national, and global level. UI&U learners and alumni have been empowering lives and communities as leaders within government, business, nonprofit management, education, the social sciences, and the field of criminal justice, and daily reflect the university's vision: to engage, enlighten, and empower highly motivated adults in their pursuit of a lifetime of learning and service.
Union's vision serves as the bedrock for each academic program, particularly the UI&U Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies program, which has long been a hallmark of the university. With a focus on social justice and interdisciplinary studies, the Ph.D. program draws from established academic disciplines while developing new approaches and generating essential knowledge related to critical intellectual and social issues.
Learners enrolled in the UI&U Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies program may choose from three distinct areas of concentration: Ethical and Creative Leadership; Public Policy and Social Change; and Humanities and Culture. Faculty members in the program's Ethical and Creative Leadership concentration (ECL) are deeply grounded in the established fields associated with leadership (theories of management, organizational development and dynamics, and more) and are recognized, productive scholars in their respective areas of academic expertise. The goal of the ECL program is to educate scholar-practitioners who engage interdisciplinary approaches to acquire a deeply informed and integrated understanding of the practice of leadership.

Zayed University is an educational centre of excellence in an emerging and evolving nation. Proudly bearing the name of the founder of the nation–the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan–it stands for innovation, inspiration, and education. Zayed University seeks to prepare students for meaningful and successful twenty-first century personal and professional lives; to graduate students who will help shape the future of the U.A.E.; to support the economic and social advancement of the U.A.E.; to lead innovation in higher education in the U.A.E. through teaching, learning, research, and outreach; and to do so in a culturally diverse, humane, technologically advanced, and increasingly global environment.
The University was founded to prepare leaders who will provide the knowledge and abilities this nation will need to enjoy a future of security and progress. It offers an academic program that prepares talented, ambitious and enthusiastic students for success in government, the arts, business, media and IT and to meet the challenges of a dynamic twenty-first century world. Accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, Zayed University is the leading provider of education, research, and economic development in the U.A.E. We offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs to both Emirati and international men and women, at campuses in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
In January 2011, Zayed University was named one of the top ten places to work in the UAE. Complied by The Great Place to Work Institute and Gulf Business magazine, the region's first ever workplace survey also ranked the university as the only government organization to reach the top ten. This year we will open a new campus for up to 6,000 students in the new Khalifa City, Abu Dhabi. This will be a state-of-the-art academic and research facility with scientific laboratories, classrooms, computer labs, a library spanning over 18,000m2 , and a cafeteria as well as a sports complex and conference centre. Zayed University's new campus in Abu Dhabi will also play host to the Women as Global Leaders Conference from 12-15 March 2012. The conference is a Zayed University initiative, highlighting a commitment to enlightened leadership and the advancement of women. The theme for the 2012 conference is 'Promoting Social Responsibility' which aims to encourage socially responsible leaders to leave a lasting legacy impacting the future development of communities and organizations across the world.
Education at Eastern University is predicated upon the university's commitment to "the integration of faith, reason, and justice." The mission of the Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership Program is to prepare leaders in business, educational and nonprofit sectors through interdisciplinary studies and original research to effectively engage in the transformation of their organizations, communities and society as practitioners and scholars. With this mission in mind, the Organizational Leadership program prepare its students to embrace the four different aspects of the transformational leader, including: the centered leader, the servant leader, the learning leader, and the visionary leader.In support of its mission to produce transformational leaders, the Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership is constructed to achieve the following goals:
- Equip students to perform effective organizational analysis and acquire a systemic understanding of the internal and external dynamics of their particular professional context.
- Foster an increasingly mature commitment to an outward-looking vision of organizational, community and societal transformation through the integration of faith, reason, and justice.
- Train students to synthesize organization and leadership theory with the professional knowledge and competencies required for leadership within a particular sector.
- Enable students to contribute to their respective fields through the creation and execution of a significant research project resulting in a dissertation.
- Encourage students to initiate, lead and evaluate a significant change process within the context of their professional disciplines.
The program supports Eastern University by building upon its mission of transformational education to include a student population that already occupies positions of influence in the organizations of our society. While Eastern will continue to teach and mold leaders for tomorrow and the mid-level leaders of today, the Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership has been created primarily for those who are already exercising significant leadership roles in educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, corporations, and public sector agencies.
The Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership Program is intended for "reflective practitioners," individuals who will pursue this degree while continuing in their current responsibilities. Potential students include managers in business, educational administrators, nonprofit and community leaders, church and denominational leaders, adjunct faculty, and others. The delivery methodology chosen for the program reflects the needs of these students.Eastern at ILA
