The establishment of University of Haripur (UoH) is an important milestone in the history of higher education in Hazara region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan; a region that let the international Karakorum Highway go through it. There was a strong motivation to establish UoH and a significant coherence among the potential stakeholders regarding the direction that such a project should take place. The motivation can be supported by (unofficially validated) estimates which suggest that in 2017-18 approximately 8,000-10,000 pupils will be enrolled in the University with the completion of proposed physical and academic infrastructure.
Having education at all levels with strong Islamic foundations is important for the nation as a whole and we firmly believe that education should be focused on providing principled, morally motivated leaders to serve the country - a new generation of leaders who understand the need for justice and peace in Pakistan. It is an understood notion that the UoH shall have a globally recognized validation. The faculty, civil society members and students are keen to emphasize the need for excellent standards that would result in a good reputation both nationally and internationally.
Our Master plan stresses the need for excellent physical facilities including science and computer laboratories and we are working untiringly to put up the modern infrastructure comprising latest technologies and facilities compatible with international standards. Moreover, the long-term goal of the UoH is to offer the full range of academic qualifications; Certificate, Diploma, BA/BSc Hons, MA/M.Sc. (conventional), MS/MPhil and PhD. The UoH has already started Ph.D. programs in various disciplines and shall start producing PhDs from 2013 onwards. It is our vision that the University of Haripur shall be open to students without discrimination on the basis of faith, cast and creed. It is aspired that the UoH would eventually serve students from other provinces such as its catchment area will attract students from some big cities of Punjab and beyond. Come and join hands with us in making University of Haripur a new arena of excellence in education and research.
