UNITED NATION ACADEMIC IMPACT (UNAI)
UNAI is a program of the Outreach Division of the United Nations Department of Global Communications. It’s an initiative that aligns institutions of higher education with the United Nations in supporting and contributing to the realization of United Nations goals and mandates, including the promotion and protection of human rights, access to education, sustainability and conflict resolution.
Since 2010, UNAI has created a vibrant and diverse network of students, academics, scientists, researchers, think tanks, institutions of higher education, continuing education and educational associations. Since its inception some thirty international networks of universities and other institutes of higher education and research have endorsed UNAI and encouraged their members to join, representing a global diversity of regions and a thematic wealth of disciplines.
The work of these institutions is vital to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as they serve as incubators of new ideas, inventions and solutions to the many global challenges we face. UNAI provides the integral link to these stakeholders to ensure that the international community harnesses the energy and innovation of young people and the research community in service to humanity.
UNAI assists stakeholders in this regard by disseminating information on UN initiatives and activities, providing ideas on how these activities can be applied at the local level on college campuses, in classrooms and in communities, and by providing a platform where university students, academics and researchers can connect and share ideas, research and resources to further the Sustainable Development Goals and other UN mandates.
While joining the UNAI, RMU has expressed its commitment to support four out of the 10 UN SDGs; Capacity-building in higher education system, Commitment to the United Nations Charter Education opportunity for all, Higher education opportunity for every interested individual and Inter-cultural dialogue and understanding — unlearning intolerance.
Every subject and discipline can have a UN imprint. RMU offers the opportunity to higher education in the field of Medical and Allied Health Sciences to all based on the merit without any discrimination of race, color, gender, creed and religion. RMU also believe in capacity building of the faculty so that they are abreast with the latest development in their fields. Therefore, RMU faculty members are urged to recognize this link and undertake activities that can directly support United Nations mandates and objectives.
