Mrs. Shahima Rehman
A development professional under whose impassioned leadership NUR-FMS has grown to providing services in healthcare, education, economic empowerment and research. Her latest endeavor is NUR International University (NIU), which is based on the vision of providing excellence in Education.
The mission of NUR International University is to provide a holistic education experience that promotes multidisciplinary studies, incorporating values and ethics and the best international academic practices. Our aim is to promote critical thinking amongst our students to equip them to understand and face the challenges of knowledge economy. In the world today, where knowledge is the most valuable resource, a comprehensive and objective worldview is required to enable students to become leaders in the global village.
The NUR Centre for Research and Policy (NCRP) is well established and engaged in helping to reform policy through informing practice. This is a platform where evidence is generated through rigorous research.
NIU through NCRP will be able to generate and disseminate knowledge and provide a platform for serious thinking on policy issues and challenges. It is also a forum interlinked with other research institutes both locally and internationally. Pakistan has great potential to take its place as a leader in the comity of nations. Our greatest wealth are the brave, resilient and brilliant young people who constitute the majority of the population. NIU has come into being to provide access and opportunity in higher education to harness this potential. InshaAllah! we look forward to welcoming our students, with the vision to partner with their parents and society at large to train individuals who will help to not only build Pakistan, but to make the world a better place as conscientious, knowledgeable and ethical leaders.
