In the name of Allah and peace be upon our noble Prophet Mohammad, his family and companions. I welcome you in International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI) which is known as a hub of educational and research excellence. Since its establishment in 1980 A.D. thousands of outstanding students have graduated in various fields like; Shari’ah, Arabic, Engineering, Management Sciences, Social Sciences, Islamic Economics, Computer Science and Applied Sciences. The university is on the verge of a new strategic plan 2022-2026 which will lead the University towards international ranking of well reputed universities via restructuring its programs and curriculums to bring in line with the international standards being followed in international prestigious universities in terms of education, innovation, and research. IIUI will continue to expand its partnerships with local and international universities and centers of research and international studies, besides signing MOU’s with International Organizations for supporting research activities and for employment of our Alumni.

IIUI equally values the importance of Cognitive Growth and Physical Development of its students to nourish their interpersonal skills, to improve the learning experiences of students, to help them identify and develop their inner talents like creative & public-speaking skills, and leadership qualities. It also offers the students an opportunity of thinking unusually and getting the innovative ideas of their own. Moreover, co-curricular activities supplement the academic curriculum and help in learning by doing. These activities help students to develop problem-solving, reasoning, critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, and collaborative abilities. By involving in Sports, students are not only able to get rid from medical complications rather it encourages social interaction, improves concentration and learning, increase personal confidence and self-awareness, reduce feelings of depression and anxiety, enhance self-esteem, and last but not the least improves quality of life.

The Directorate of Student Affairs is manifested with the mandate of Cognitive Growth and Physical Development for our valued students. I encourage students to involve themselves in the Cognitive Growth and Physical Development activities such as seminars, lectures, social campaigns, debates, discussions, dialogues, declamation contests, arts, calligraphy, skits, dramas, IT competitions, programs of Dawah and Tarbeeha along with participation in different indoor and outdoor games. For productive and balanced life, students are meant to bring social skills, intellectual skills, moral values, personality progress, character appeal, emotional wellbeing, mental health, enhanced social skills, and a reduction in anti-social behavior.

I pray to Allah to guide us to help our valued students achieve the good ideals of life and make efforts for prosperity and betterment of the University.
