MESSAGE FROM THE VICE CHANCELLOR
I firmly believe that a planned social change, which is deep and broad yet sustainable, can only be cultivated through a consistent and effective delivery of good education to the masses. This in turn can only be ensured by well prepared and committed educationists whether in the roles of teachers, administrators, content developers or policymakers. The University of Education has the unique responsibility to produce, and maintain a steady supply of, such capable professionals. Therefore, we commit ourselves to advance the study and practice of education including excellence in the allied knowledge areas and to develop comprehension of the interactions between them. While endeavoring to fulfill this commitment we emphasize on creating a culture where the future educationists learn and practice what they are supposed to demonstrate in terms of values & virtues as well as the abilities & attitudes, hence, we set our objectives as:
- To study and practice contemporary theories, methods, technologies and mediums of teaching/learning and to prepare personnel for a variety of professional roles in the field of education.
- To develop adaptations of the latest knowledge to local environment in terms of economy, culture, religion, languages or any other relevant parameters and at the same time conduct indigenous research in order to effectively contribute to the body of knowledge in the areas related with educational needs, practices and issues.
- To participate in and contribute to the matters like educational policy, curriculum design & development, teaching/learning materials development, educational attainment standards, education delivery mechanisms and development of educational organizations etc.
- To develop collaborative linkages with and provide support to local, provincial, national and international agencies mandated with provision, regulation and/or promotion of education and related services.
University of Education, though established in 2002, has a long history of excellence and service. The oldest of its constituent campuses, the Lower Mall Campus, had initiated its operations in 1880 while the Bank Road Campus was established in 1933. These institutions have, over their life, produced hundreds of thousands of capable educationists who have enlightened generations across the sub-continent and abroad. The rich history and legacy of these institutions remains our inspiration and we continue the pursuit of excellence with full vigor.
