While addressing the participants, Vice Chancellor Dr Rauf-i-Azam said that educational institutes should focus more on quality rather than quantity. He said the ultimate aim of universities was to produce graduates who were effective leaders in their careers, communities and societies.

In this perspective, the universities were facing the challenge of improving pedagogy and teaching processes. However, this challenge could be addressed if academia established liaison with student bodies and industry, he added.
