DrFayAlKhalifaIn this world that is repeatedly changing and changing us with it, we can stand still observing what is happening around us. We can question how others got there and how can we reach. We can write pages and pages to explain who we are, what we will be, and where we will go and when.

Instead, we decided not to explain or talk, but to act.

We started working immediately because we believe that those who are builders have no time to speak. You only hear the sounds of their hammers and the buzzing of their machines!

The late American businessman Jim Ron once said: "Whatever good things we build, end up building us". And because we aspire to be exceptional at the University of Bahrain, our work must also be unique, and our achievements should undoubtedly be high.
And because the fast-changing world does not wait for anyone to catch up, we have chosen to race against time, to get ahead of ourselves, and to jump to our goals, and beyond. Not because this is the easiest and fastest thing to do, But because it is the most challenging, and because we can. We love challenges, and we will continue to strive to excel in all aspects, even when we are already at the frontier.

We are part of the bigger picture, our national university. We strive to be the hub in which dreams and aspirations come true, ideas are formed, and creations and innovations are spread. Here at the Digital Learning and Innovation Center, the pioneers, the people of inspiration, the imaginative and the seekers of knowledge meet. We embrace them all in our creative spaces. We empower them with experiences and with the technologies of today. We help and support innovative individuals to bring the best of their ideas into the world.

This is our mission, every day, which we accomplish in an atmosphere of respect, integrity, dedication and transparency, with organized priorities and unbreakable leadership. We think of our values as our most valuable assets and the main pillars of our identity.

Because we believe that cooperation is the spirit of the place, without which, achievements cannot be attained; we are very proud of our knowledge-based strategic partnerships with a group of supporters who continuously encourage our growth and sustainability. Our partnerships help us create an environment that is rich in innovation. An environment that assists our innovative learns in painting a more meaningful picture of the future.

Our eyes are focused on our goals. We work here with efficiency and dedication, hand in hand, to make a difference in our tomorrow. We love change, adapt to it and embrace it gracefully. We instil perfection in every corner, and we strive to enable ourselves and those who are surrounding us, technically and cognitively, to accomplish the impossible and to always be at the front of the line.

We have taken up the challenge to be, at the University of Bahrain, a model of excellence, locally and regionally in harnessing modern technologies in education, learning and in scientific research. We envision here, a new line of thought, a future that no one imagined yet, one that we will all live inevitably.

And for our full belief that "One step by 100 persons is better than 100 steps by one person." Koichi Tsukamoto; I invite my colleagues, members of the academic and administrative staff and our beloved students to pack their ideas and aspirations and pace with us towards a prosperous future that is empowered with modern educational technologies and digital innovations.
