Introduction

 

University of Peshawar was established in 1950. Since then, it has developed into one of the best institutions of the country and has produced thousands of intellectuals, scholars, civil servants, politicians, leaders and students.  Its students and the community have the potential to serve as a resource for the advancement of the University, support and mentoring of students and for the professional development of its members. Its aim is to build  lifelong Alumni relationships with UoP based on loyalty, mutual support, and growth. The Alumni section at the CDC provides an interface for the alumni with the University to provide any assistance that an alumnus may require. The Office also works closely with the individual department of each program to organize meaningful and enjoyable events and activities for the career development of the current and graduated students.

President UoPAA Message

 

I am profoundly honored by the opportunity to serve as the First President of University of Peshawar Alumni Association (UoPAA). The mission and commitment of UoPAA remains the same, to keep our alumni connected to our university, and each other, and to support the students who will follow as future UoP graduates.

One of my first steps as Alumni President was to upgrade our social networking capabilities to reach out to our members via Facebook and LinkedIn and to work proactively with Alumni members to engage in our activities. The strength of our Alumni Association is our diversity. UoP Alumni Association offers valuable networking opportunities that can and will harness solid professional, academic and social relationships while offering career development opportunities to the younger generation of graduates.

The University of Peshawar is in the process of registering its Alumni Association as an independent legal entity for the first time since its creation. I would like to urge every Alumni to come forward and enrich this forum with your experience, knowledge, connections and wisdom. My Cabinet and I are very passionate about Alumni Association because it provides all of us an excellent opportunity to connect with each other with a spirit of giving back to our alma mater.

I look forward to your active involvement and participation.

Thanks

Amjad Ali Arbab

President UoPAA

Departmental Reunions (Alumni)

Departmental Re-union is an emotionally charged environment. Triple embrace and double handshake in a purely Peshawar tradition marks the occasion. Staff and students mix up in a friendly manner and overflowed with nostalgia. With dreamy eyes, everybody recall their memories. They speak about the old spreading tree which is missing after the renovation. They look at the refurbished department building and redraw their old classrooms out of their memories. In short, departmental reunion is a great opportunity to reunite with seniors, old friends, classmates and teachers.

CDC is in touch with all the departments and is adamant on facilitating all the alumni of UoP in arranging class reunions, batch reunions or departmental reunions

Alumni Home Coming

Nothing is more important to us than seeing you all together again at UoP on Home Coming Day. We are excited to look back on treasured memories with you, and celebrate the enduring legacy of our incredible University.  Annual “Alumni Homecoming” brings many of our Alumni back to University of Peshawar for a day full of new laughs, shared memories and catching up.
