Vice Chancellor Message

Mirwais Sediqmal

It is a matter of honor and immense pleasure that the Ministry of Higher Education of Afghanistan (MOHE) has given me an opportunity to lead Laghman University. I take this opportunity to welcome students coming from various parts of the country, joining the university in undergraduate programs. Laghman University started its scientific and academic journey in 2011 with the establishment of the Agriculture Faculty. With each passing year, Laghman University achieved good progress by establishing new faculties and departments with the unstoppable efforts of professors and administrative staff. Currently, there are five (5) faculties and sixteen (16) departments are hosting approximately 2633 students. These various disciplines have been thought by seventy-two (72) qualified and specialized professors, most of them have master's degrees from prestigious international universities around the world.

As vice-chancellor of the university, I will focus on five strategic goals namely; improving the quality of teaching, responding to the socio-economic needs of the country, student satisfaction, becoming a fully an independent public university and transforming Laghman University from a knowledge-based university into a research-oriented university.

Over the years technology has been growing fast and we have to adjust accordingly. Therefore, we continuously review and revise our curriculum to ensure the delivery of quality education to our students in order to meet global standards. In addition, a series of extracurricular activities are offered that lead to the physical and mental formation of our students.

As Vice-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 will continue in the future with greater zeal. We as a team at Laghman University, strive to prepare students to become better citizens of our country irrespective of their cultural and financial background and contribute to the welfare of society and the country’s development.

I wish and assure you, on behalf of the University family, that we will help you pursue your objectives of life under the varied social, cultural, and economic environment and make the University family proud of your attainments.

Regards

VC of Laghman University
