Message from the Chancellor
Education is the core value of a nation, and the function of an educational institution is not only to take care of an individual’s academic growth but also to take charge of his/her personal, social, mental, psychological, and spiritual maturity for overall learning and transformation. Only an institution which takes care of all these dynamics can shape a true scholar and a true professional, and Abasyn University is one of its kind in this realm.
Abasyn University, established in 2007 through an Act of Provincial Assembly, has now emerged as a sustainable organization with the grace of Almighty and the committed efforts of the faculty and the management. Within a short span of time, the university has made a number of achievements including a thriving campus at Islamabad, and one in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE which will be operational as soon as HEC gives a green signal.
This is heartening to know that apart from excelling in academic standards, students of Abasyn University actively participate in diverse socio-cultural activities of high standards such as tree plantation, traffic education, blood donation, youth awareness, and community service campaigns, drives, and projects to nurture exceptional values of social importance. The University, energized by its distinguished faculty and strengthened by its brilliant students, now stands in the highest echelons of education in the country and strives to forge new paths for a brighter tomorrow of Pakistan.
I would like to congratulate the faculty and management of the University for their efforts being rewarded in terms of recognition of D-Pharmacy Discipline by the Pharmacy Council of Pakistan. This is going to be a historical year for Abasyn University as the university has planned its first convocation which will be held in May 2014, In-sha-Allah.
I pray to Allah to crown our endeavours with success!
