PESHAWAR:


Professor Dr Adnan Sarwar Khan is expected to be appointed as the fourth acting vice chancellor of Islamia College University (ICU).


An official of the University of Peshawar (UoP) confirmed the news stating after the approval of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa governor and chief minister, the Higher Education Department will give a notification in a day or two.

Professor Dr Adnan Sarwar Khan became the chairman of the department in 2002.

Later in 2009, Dr Khan was appointed as the principal of the UoP’s Law College.

Dr Sarwar is a member of the board of advanced studies and research at the Benazir Bhutto Women University, principal of the Law College of UoP and chairman of the IR department.

Talking to The Express Tribune, Professor Adnan Sarwar confirmed his appointment as the VC and said the notification will be issued in a few days.

The college has been operating under acting vice chancellors for the past three years after the abduction of its VC Ajmal Khan in September 2010. His tenure was extended for another four years last June.

After the first VC, Professor Haider Shah Jadoon was appointed the acting VC late in 2010. Eight months later, Dr Noor Jehan was appointed on this post, and then in 2013 Dr Ihsan Ali succeeded Dr Jehan as the third acting VC of the Islamia College.

Zohaib Nadeem | 7 years ago | Reply @Sanaa It is not a simple foreign PhD degree holder case. Think clealy about a person with a PhD from USA with distinction, refusing lucrative foriegn job offers and returning back to serve his homeland. Excellent research profile, As alumni of Islamia College we deserve to have the Best Vice Chancellor with global vision and effective leadership. Based on these facts Dr Adnan is no match at all and thus a poor choice.
