Message from Chancellor

As a member of the academic community, my ties with the education sector of our country extend for more than 30 years. Having teaching, research and administrative experience — including as the Head of the Central Department of Sociology/Anthropology, as the Senator of Tribhuvan University and University of Forestry and Agriculture, and as the Chairman of the University Grants Commission Nepal — I have accepted the position of Chancellor as an appropriate opportunity to share the knowledge and experience I have gathered throughout my life.

I accept this position to respect and honor the bold initiative of Honorable Chief Minister Prithivi Subba Gurung. Instead of being Chancellor himself, Chief Minister Gurung gave priority to academics of this country leading higher education by forming a Board of Trustees for the first time in Nepal. He chose to do this rather than following the traditional power structure by appointing the vice-chancellor from the Head of Government. Chief Minister Gurung has become a role model for higher education in Nepal by prioritizing freedom, and I am sure that one day all universities of this country will follow his new thinking.  Thus, i find this as a great opportunity, as the Chancellor of a newly-conceived university, to make it a model in Nepal and a center to attract both Nepali and foreign students.
