Research Charter

Our goal is to become a research driven university fostering excellence in teaching, research, community service and capacity building, and nurturing socially responsible leaders through an eclectic and sustainable approach serving the local and regional communities. Towards this end, we will work to create and maintain a vibrant research environment to promote cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research and collaborative work with local, regional, and international communities while ensuring academic freedom and functional autonomy, and also enabling an enriching, intellectually engaging, and Discovery-based learning environment for our students.

Our research objectives are based on our belief that high-quality, interdisciplinary research and knowledge creation are key, not only to determining the future of higher education and creating sustainable excellence in universities, but also to maximizing our impact in our public service mission.
