The University of the Punjab enjoys a respectable position as a seat of learning amongst the reputed universities of the world on account of its rich cultural heritage and accessible opportunities being provided to a multitude of our youth for attaining quality education at an affordable cost.
It is indeed a matter of great satisfaction for me to note that significant improvement has been made in the sphere of imparting higher education at the University. Innovative research in various new disciplines and new scientific courses has recently been introduced which will greatly help to cultivate an atmosphere essential for acquiring a high academic standard.
It is commendable that the University of the Punjab has created a modern infrastructure to make it possible for students to update their knowledge in various scientific disciplines since modern technology has become an essential vehicle of rapid progress. At the same time, the University has been quite successful in maintaining a balance between modern trends in education and its old traditions.
As Chancellor, I am confident that efforts to excel in the field of higher education and the inculcation of moral values in the students at the University Campus will continue in future with a greater zeal.
