Prof. Dr. Qamar uz Zaman
Vice Chancellor
PMAS-Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi

Prior to joining Dalhousie, Dr. Zaman was serving into his third research venture in Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Japan under JSPS program.

Educationists in Pakistan have shown their trust in the leadership of Dr. Zaman. “He joins PMAS-AAUR at a time of tremendous
momentum: record enrolment and fundraising, significant renewal of the university’s campuses and a strong leadership team
in place across the university,” says Dr. Khalid Mahmood Khan – Ex Vice Chancellor, who served PMAR-UAAR for over 10 years. “
Under Dr. Zaman’s leadership, I’m certain these successes will be just a taste of what PMAR-AAUR third decade has in store”,
he added.

He also sees PMAS-AAUR as a “rising star” in mission-oriented research — but one which puts students at the forefront of that
mission. “Students are at the heart of the raison d’être of a university,” he says. “Building upon PMAS-AAUR’s national and
international reputation for rich student experience, I look forward to a deep engagement with students, faculty, staff and
community to position PMAS-AAUR as the national leader in delivering value to our students and offering a transformative
educational and life experience on our campuses.”
