Message from the Vice-Chancellor

msg_vcFar-western University (FU) was established in 2010 AD by the  Act of Parliament. Nevertheless, the university  obtained  approval  of  its  rules  and  regulations,  programs and budget from the  first historic senate meeting held on September 21, 2012. Though the  university gave its  first priority  to  the  merging  of  the  two  campuses,  i.e.  Siddhanath  Multiple  Campus  and  Siddhanath  Science Campus  we could  merge  the  former  one  so  far .  The  process of merging of Siddhanath Science Campus into the university is underway .  It will be materialized soon.

The university has prepared its  five-year  strategic  plan and  it  is in  the  process of preparing a long term plan in consultation with the stakeholders of the region and beyond. It  launched  its  undergraduate programs in  14 different  subjects  under the  faculties  of  management,  education,  humanities  and  social  sciences  and science  and  technology  (computer  science)  from  December 2012  at  Siddhanath Multiple Campus (SMC).   All the  undergraduate  programs  of  this  university  are  of  four- year duration under the semester system except for the BBS program which still follows the  yearly system.  The university is launching  the  graduate programs in  eight  different  subjects  from  the  current  academic  session.

In  the  coming  years,  FU  has  a  plan  to  expand  its  networking  in  other  districts  of  the region  and  also  in  other parts of the  country .  The second  university  senate  meeting held  on  September  15,  2013  passed  the  proposal  of  the  university  to  give constituent status to at least two campuses of this region every year . The meeting also approved the proposal of making Kailali Multiple Campus, Dhangadhi and Jaya  Prithwi  Multiple  Campus,  Bajhang  as  the  constituent  campuses  of  the university  to  begin  with. We  will formulate  the  modality to  this  effect  soon  in consultation  with  the  stakeholders  and  the  concerned  authorities  such  as  the  UGC,

Ministry of Education and the  Ministry of Finance. We will further  explore the possibility of expanding its  programs and faculties in  other districts of the  region  and beyond.  Academic relationship will also be established with the universities of  home  and  abroad  in  the  coming  days.

With  our  new  and  practical-  oriented  programs,  we  are  committed  to academic excellence, creativity and research. We invite you to experience what we  have  to  offer  educationally ,  spiritually  and  professionally .  We  provide  our students with an opportunity to grow and change with the diverse society . In the present competitive world, we nurture, support and educate our students to grow as the  worthy and productive citizens of this  country .  Our academic programs are built upon the assumptions that they bring out the inner potential of our students.

In  each  course,  the  students  are  given  every  opportunity  to  create,  innovate,discover  and  implement  their  creations.  Thus, we take  our  students  as  the  creative  and  critical  thinkers,  prepared  for  the  global  market.  Once  you  enroll  in  our academic  programs,  you  will  feel  the  difference.

I  wish  you  a  very  productive  academic  year  ahead.
