Alumni Demands Flagship Status for QAU


In the wake of Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) Islamabad’s outstanding performance in the recent QS World University Rankings, alumni have come together to urge the federal government to designate the institution as a “Flagship Institution.” The demand was made during a significant gathering of the Core Committee of the QAU Alumni Association Founders Group, chaired by Dr. Abdul Basit.

The alumni, comprising esteemed former students of QAU, emphasized the need for the government’s support to address the institution’s annual deficit of over 500 million rupees. They underscored that with adequate financial backing, QAU could continue to excel on regional and international platforms, bringing further recognition to Pakistan’s educational landscape.

During the meeting, attended by senior Quaidians, a series of initiatives were outlined to bolster the university’s standing and support its current and future students. These initiatives include establishing the Quaidians Commoners Academy under the supervision of Mr. Khalid Masood, former Principal Secretary to the President of Pakistan, aimed at providing guidance to young Quaidians.

Additionally, plans were set forth for the enhancement of social welfare projects, such as the installation of new water filtration systems at QAU hostels, the revival of the Quaidians Mentorship and Scholarship Programs, and the strengthening of the Blood Donors Forum Pakistan (BDFP). These endeavors are geared towards fostering a sense of unity among Quaidians and giving back to the alma mater in practical terms.

The committee commended Vice Chancellor QAU, faculty, employees, alumni, and students for their collective efforts in securing impressive rankings in the QS subject ranking 2024. They also urged the establishment of a Psychological Counseling Centre on the QAU campus to provide continuous support to students, demonstrating their commitment to the well-being of the university community.

As the alumni continue their advocacy for QAU’s elevation to flagship status, they pledge their unwavering cooperation to ensure the institution’s sustained growth and prominence in the global academic arena.
