Higher education institutions today face an increasingly complex and rapidly changing environment. To adapt and respond effectively, they must develop themselves as learning organizations that foster readiness for change. Developing resilience organizational levels is critical to this process, as it empowers higher education institutions to navigate through challenges effectively. However, research on the interrelationships between these constructs in higher education institutions is limited. Understanding these potential links is crucial for higher education institutions seeking to enhance their change readiness capabilities. Against this background, this research examines the impact of organizational resilience on organizational readiness for change in higher education institutions in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The model is tested with a sample of 250 respondents collected from three higher education institutions in the UAE. Here, a quantitative approach using partial least squares structural equation modeling (WarpPLS-8.0 version) is employed. The results indicate that resilience positive relationship on orgnaizational readiness for change. The study contributes to the literature by investigating the two key concepts and applying the model specifically in UAE higher education institutions. The findings have practical implications for UAE universities seeking to enhance their adaptability and responsiveness to change. As learning organizations, they can build resilience capacities among faculty and staff to strengthen organizational change readiness.
