The difference Aga Khan University (AKU) makes
“As I have watched our recent progress, it is clear that we are now moving at an accelerating pace into a new phase of our history – a period in which our energies will be focused more than ever on reaching out to new locations, new disciplines and new partners.
It is a time when we will become more inter-dependent, more inter-disciplinary and more international – just as our world itself is becoming more inter-related.
The Aga Khan University has been described as a ‘problem-oriented university’ – a description of which we should all be proud. It explains why we focused so sharply on the fields of health and education in our early days – these were the sectors where our planners identified as the most urgent problems. And they are still areas of central concern.”
