 Message from General Secretary

 

The University of Kashmir has a unique feature of having served the society for the past more than 60 years and pass outs of the University are spread out throughout the globe. University of Kashmir is proud of its alumni. There are countless success stories of Kashmir University Alumni. It is their hard work coupled with the knowledge acquired at their alma mater that helped them in occupying highest responsibilities in diverse organizations.

While everyone who completes his or her Degree at the University is a member of the Kashmir University 'Family', some family members wish to continue to be a part of the activities of the University and would like to help the Alma Mater grow further and improve its programs so as to tune them to the modern times.  To have a close network with all alumni a group of about forty alumni of university of Kashmir (founder Members) got organized in the form of Non-political Association under the banner “Kashmir University Alumni Association (KUAA)” in 2002. The Association stands registered with the J & K Government right from 2002.

The KUAA has been serving the society by (a) providing scholarships to graduate and post-graduate students and (b) running two primary schools for children of socially backward people at Anchar (Soura, Srinagar) and Shaanpora, Habak (Hazratbal, Srinagar). The KUAA also strives to help alumni maintain connections to their Alma Mater as well as fellow graduates and also provides a common platform for interaction of alumni of the University.

I on behalf of the Association, invite all the Alumni of University of Kashmir, wherever they may be, to join us in serving the society by becoming Member of the KUAA.

President's Message

       
The primary aim of education is to develop and implement an integrated and comprehensive programme of educational development so as to usher in a social transformation. As such, it becomes imperative that quality education be provided to students particularly those who hail from under-privileged families. To guarantee that the right to education is exercised without discrimination of any kind, a high level of financial assistance is needed through a process of soliciting and gathering voluntary contributions in the form of money from both public and private sectors. Volunteering, as such, becomes a great way to advance the cause of socio-economic development of the community by providing student scholarship, merit awards for athletic and academic achievements and create infrastructure for Information and Communication Technology.

It is in this spirit that former students across the globe belonging to the University of Kashmir have got together and formed the Kashmir University Alumni Association (KUAA) to make a difference in our community. With a defined constitution and memorandum of association, KUAA has made affordable and accessible appropriate and quality education to economically and socially under-privileged students ever since its inception. Its constitution and memorandum not only enable it to work in a transparent and organized manner but also highlight its aims/objectives, financial regulations and control system.

The Alumni has initiated several activities that have earned students various degrees and diplomas. Needless to say, it runs its own schools in remote and far flung areas to reach out to students of the under-privileged sections of the society. While we salute the Association for its continuing energetic efforts, we also hope that more and more Alumni from the University join and support this wonderful effort.

Since we feel that most of our social ills are the direct result of the lack of appropriate education, partnering with KUAA is an excellent way to promote your commitment to the values of compassion and generosity.

 

Prof. K.I. Andrabi
