At Nile University, we contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Egypt's vision for 2030. This is applied on four levels conceptualized in our 4 pillars: Learning, Research, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Community Impact.

We put this into practice by educating students to bring out solutions for the plights facing our community and so we make sure to:

  • Equip them with the tools to bring sustainability concepts into the workplace and design innovative solutions to solve world challenges.
  • Help existing businesses to transition towards more environmentally sustainable modes of production and consumption.
  • Support startups and SMEs in different industries to produce sustainable products.
  • Expose them outside university halls to interact with the community by engaging in fruitful partnerships with different organizations.
