Assistant Chancellor of Branch Affairs Office
Assistant Chancellor's Welcome
In the Name of Allah the Most Merciful and Most Compassionate

Praise be to Allah, who bestowed upon humans intelligence, understanding and knowledge over other creatures, and peace and blessings upon His Messenger, Muhammad bin Abdullah, the best of all creation and beings, and upon his family and loyal companions.

The University has established branch locations in both the eastern and middle regions of the Emirate of Sharjah in order to realize the vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Sharjah, and President of the University of Sharjah, which calls for providing education onsite and new work opportunities for all nationals. His vision further calls for the dissemination of knowledge, science and culture in various parts of the Emirate and responding to the needs of the local community surrounding these branches. Remarkably, five University branches have now been established in each of Khorfakkan, Kalba, Al Dhaid, Dibba Al Hisn, and Maleiha. With the increase in University branches, there has been an increase in administrative work, a steady increase in student numbers, and an increase in faculty and administrative/technical staff as well as an expansion of academic programs offered at the diploma, bachelor and master degree levels. Therefore, upon the directive of His Highness, President of the University, the new position of Assistant Chancellor of Branch Affairs was introduced to assist the Chancellor, follow up on the affairs of these branches and oversee their academic and administrative affairs. I am honored that His Highness approved my nomination for the position after my service of over 15 years at the University in my work as Professor of Civil Law, Chairman of the Department of Private Law for two years, and Dean of the College of Law for six consecutive years.

I welcome visitors from both inside and outside the University to visit our website and hope you find it beneficial and also find the answers to your questions. I also welcome my colleagues, the Vice Chancellors, department chairpersons, heads of departments and units, and faculty and administrative staff from the various colleges at the University branches, asking Allah to guide us all under the patronage of His Highness, President of the University (may Allah protect him).

Professor Adnan Ibrahim Sarhan,
Professor of Civil Law and Assistant Chancellor of Branch Affairs
