American Int’l University receives global award
American International University West Africa (AIUWA) in The Gambia has been awarded this year’s African Education Leadership Award at a ceremony held on 7 December 2016 in Mauritius.
The international award was received by the founder and president of the university, Dr Dinesh Shukla, during the 6th Africa Education Leadership Awards.
The Africa Education Leadership Awards is run and managed virtually by professionals who have full time jobs but are united by a common passion of making a difference in Africa. The organisation has hosted some of the best events such as World Brand Congress, World Education Congress, among others.
Officials explained that the procedure in which the award winners are selected is rigorous. The task of choosing an award winner is assigned to a global research cell, which constitutes professionals from different parts of the world.
This year, more than 20 categories were recognised, including high profile corporate business leaders in Africa.
Dinesh Shukla, president of AIUWA, at a news conference, thanked The Gambia government for providing the enabling environment for the university to fulfil its mission and vision.
“It is an honour to receive this award and I would like to share it with the people of The Gambia,” he said.
AIUWA started in The Gambia in 2011. In five years, the university established six colleges: College of Medicine, College of Dentistry, College of Pharmacy, College of Nursing, College of Health Sciences, and College of Management and Information Technology.
The university follows American education curriculum approved by the American Professional Boards.
The students sit to American Professional Board Examinations and receive American certification. The university is opened to students from all over Africa.
The university officials said the current student population is derived from 16 countries in Africa.

American International University West Africa has been approved by Google to implement Google Apps for its students, faculty and staff. The most important services scheduled to be implemented are: Emails, Calendar, Classroom and all associated Google Apps programs which shall enable faculty and students communicate effectively. It is estimated that the services shall be implemented within 4-6 months.
The primary reason to implement Google Apps is email. AIUWA was maintaining its own email servers for the students and faculty with limited inbox capacity. This challenge has been resolved utilizing the Google Apps. We intend to integrate all educational apps like Google Classroom, Calendar etc. provided by Google to make it easier for faculty and students communicate in an easier way and on one platform.
