Vice Chancellor's Message
Prof. Dr. Haleem Khan
Women University of AJK, Bagh being an emerging educational institution is looking forward to achieve excellence in imparting quality education and promoting research culture in diverse programs. Around the world, universities are considered as a catalyst for change. We are looking forward to the desired change which we need to prosper as a nation, but one individual cannot bring a change. An individual can only provide quality leadership which is needed to take people along for achieving desired goals. I request my students, faculty and other staff to help me in bringing change in the life of our nation through achieving academic excellence and adhering to our values, customs, and traditions.
It is fortunate that on the soil of the paradise on earth (Kashmir) a holistic and comprehensive University is established for those, under whose feet lies the paradise. The proverb; “give me a good mother and I shall give you a good nation” demanded it and we are pleased to initiate that glorious institution at Bagh, the very name of which is fragrant and attractive.
We are a team of motivated academicians, aiming at working selflessly to make the dream of a high-ranking University at national level comes true. We aspire and believe that this esteemed institution will spread light of knowledge and up-to date skills, and research not only throughout Azad Kashmir but throughout Pakistan and across the borders. We have a series of achievements to our credit, namely opening of 14 departments of sciences and social sciences, establishing 35 administrative units for the facilitation of teaching departments, hiring 114 permanent faculty members, expanding the library with more than 10,000 books, research publications, periodicals etc., enrollment of approximately 3200 students during early four years, graduating 63 M.Phil Scholars and 234 Master students, expanding 5.75 Million for students scholarships, getting Rs. 150 Million for students as their fee reimbursement, providing laptops to 600 students and providing jobs to 250 employees.
May Allah give us enough courage and strength to embrace the lofty aims of learning and bring confidence in brilliant citizens and leaders not only keeping pace with the world but ahead of the world; and women we believe would do make the expectations true, because their thirst, toil for knowledge and sense of responsibility in different walks of life is as evident as the fragrance of flowers and light of the sun. May Allah be always with us.
