Theme of “Vice Chancellor’s Forum 2013” was Universities in the Islamic World: Challenges of Internalization. The forum was held on September 23-24, 2013 in Serena Islamabad. The specific objectives set forth for the Forum were to help establish linkages and promote networking among the participating universities/institutions, pool resources including but not limited to offering scholarship for higher studies and promote exchange of students and faculty among the participating universities/institutions.
Government College University Faisalabad had a stall to display its research innovations. The Worthy Vice Chancellor Dr. Zakir Hussain signed two MoUs; one with Istanbul Medeniyet University, Turkey and the other with Monastir University, Tunisia. This MoUs will initiate the exchange of staff, scholars, students, academic information and materials in the belief that the research and education processes at both universities would be enhanced and that mutual understanding between their respective staff, scholars and students would be increased by the establishment of such exchange programs.
