We are living in a time of unprecedented scientific, technical and technological advancement, yet we are faced with critical issues that threaten our welfare, development and survival. Shaping human attitudes and behaviors towards resolving issues, restoring hope and building community within a given geographical sphere is a global challenge. It becomes particularly urgent when society at large is being driven to a state of extreme hopelessness. In such a situation, the community will welcome any initiative aimed at the improvement of their livelihood and promises solution of their local problems.
Mere acquisition of resources don’t drive economies and impact people’s life standards any more. It is the investment in higher education sector and applied scientific research that impacts people, drives economies, sustains growth, inculcates positive changes in attitudes and ensures all round development within a society. The higher education institutions play a decisive role in leading the nations towards position of honor, prestige and strength. The depth and interdisciplinary nature of research at institutes of higher learning sparks creative, imaginative and inventive insights and offers solutions to real life problems.
Having emerged in July 2012 on the higher education landscape of Pakistan, the University of Haripur (UOH), envisions a research based, quality conscious and demand driven future to acquire excellence in diverse fields to restore hope and build community at large. We aspire to achieve and maintain high standards in every sphere of our teaching and promote an open, collaborative and novel culture of applied scientific inquiry to improve the lives and livelihoods of the people.
