Celebrating 35 Years of Excellence
The year 2021 marks the 35th anniversary of LUMS. Ever since its founding in 1985, the leadership, faculty, students, staff, donors and alumni have been making things happen. At the core of the LUMS experience lies the legacy of hard work, dedication and integrity.
The founding members built LUMS on the values of commitment to excellence and a merit-based approach that have stood the test of time. This has nurtured a legacy of talented individuals who work to make a better world. They continue to anticipate and tackle the challenges of society and put forward innovative solutions to real-life problems.
And this is what education at LUMS is all about.
Starting from a small bungalow in Lahore with an MBA programme to a 100-acre campus brimming with research, pedagogical innovations, five schools with 42 academic programmes, and gaining national and international accolades continuously, LUMS has come a long way.
With a student body admitted on merit alone and drawn from every corner of the country, guided by faculty who is passionate about teaching, research and knowledge exchange, the University continues to march into an era of impressive development and impactful projects.
Together, we are a community of doers, learners, and explorers united by a sense of giving back to society. The leadership, donors, alumni, faculty, students, and staff all stand together with a sense of belonging, and the recognition that each member of this community has a contribution to make.
Over the past three decades, our donors’ patronage and trust has supported us to continue our focus. As we mark a new milestone of 35 years of excellence, we all realise that we have to lead on. The emphasis on leading with distinction, building global partnerships, putting forward cutting-edge research, ushering in a new era of online educational models, creating an inclusive and collaborative community run under the philosophy of ‘Learning Without Borders’ continue. Similarly, strategic improvements are thought about and put into practice as we continue to see results in the form of student, faculty and alumni successes.
Our priorities renew the ways in which we impact the world we live in and continue to think, and develop out-of-the-box solutions to the grand challenges that lay ahead.
Let’s celebrate this milestone and aim for many more years of success and impact!
