Vice Chancellor's MESSAGE

“Pakistan is an agricultural economy and about two-third population lives in the rural areas. Agriculture and development of rural areas must proceed together. Educational institutes should play a prime role in addressing the problems of rural communities. I appreciate the efforts of UAF Sub-Campus Burewala-Vehari for conducting the events like “Kisan Convention”. It is a positive gesture and an effort to communicate with the rural farmers. We are here to focus upon the problems of farmers. There is a need to update policies for the promotion of agricultural sector.

This campus is built with a purpose to serve the community in its immediate vicinity. Our young researchers should communicate with the community here. Our faculty members should conduct surveys, seminars and workshops. A research and outreach center will also be established at Burewala Campus in the near future, to conduct skill development and capacity building work. The lessons learned would help government to design policies for a better future.”

Prof. Dr. Iqrar Ahmad Khan (S.I.), Vice Chancellor, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad has played a vital role in the development of multiple campuses of UAF through out the province. His aim is to provide quality education to the rural community. The above-quoted message is taken from his address to farmers, students and staff members gathered in Kisan Convention held on May 14, 2016 in UAF Sub-Campus Burewala-Vehari.
