Message from Dr. Salim S.​ Virani, Vice
Provost, Research
What will maintain our University’s global footprint for decades and centuries to come, is the creation and preservation of knowledge as clearly articulated by our Chancellor.


The Office of Research and Graduate Studies is the central coordination entity which supports the overall vision of the University to conduct research that contributes to the global body of knowledge and advances public policy in response to the real needs of communities and people in the developing world.​
