Ubah Adem (Ph.D)

Dire Dawa University President

Welcome to DDU home page where you will find information about activities framed by the DDU vision and mission – to promote and advocate for the role of research and higher education for a democratic and sustainable development of society, with local relevance and global responsibility.

The strength of DDU as the global voice for Higher Education is to advocate for Higher Education to policy- and decision-makers; to provide a valuable platform for cooperation and for sharing knowledge in HE, building on the participation and engagement from Members and partners and of other stakeholders in HE. This is well reflected in the celebrations to mark the DDU’s anniversary.
