am deeply humbled for being entrusted the responsibility to
lead this esteemed institution that rests on the foundation
laid by the visionary team of pioneers who dared to dream
differently. They, along with the steadfast support of countless
well wishers including but not limited to students, parents,
staffs, faculties, local, national and international supporters
from all walks of life have made Kathmandu University an epitome
of the belief that good intentions strengthened by determination
and dedication prevails amidst all adversities.
As our country and the world stands at this critical juncture
of history, where there are myriad possibilities within our
capacity for making lives of people better, more than ever
before, responsibilities fall on our shoulders to advance
the cause of scholarship for the service of this country and
the rest of humanity. Through enduring impacts in education,
research, innovation and service in diverse fields, we are
capable to address the challenges which seemed insurmountable
in not too distant past. This demands a stronger coordination
and collaboration between governmental, non-governmental and
other institutions representing like-minded people united
for the same cause.
As I express gratitude to all those who believed in me, I
assure that I will leave no stones unturned to take this institution
to newer heights by facilitating every endeavor that would
help advance ‘Quality Education for Leadership’.
While we work on the issues we differ, let us not lose time
to work together on the dreams that we share.
