MOU Signed between Punjab Group of Colleges/Allied Schools and LUMS School of Education


Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) joined hands with Punjab Group of Colleges/Allied Schools through a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate research and outreach efforts working towards the common goal of building a robust education ecosystem in Pakistan. The event started with a welcome note by Prof. Dr. S. Sohail H. Naqvi, Vice Chancellor LUMS and introduction of the LUMS School of Education by its Associate Dean, Dr. Mariam Chughtai. While addressing the audience at the occasion Prof. Dr. S. Sohail H. Naqvi stated that, “The collaboration between the Punjab Group of Colleges and LUMS SOE will serve an important role in reforming the education sector in Pakistan.” The Executive Director of Punjab Group of Colleges, Prof. Sohail Afzal also emphasized on the significance of the MOU. “There is a need for continuous professional development of teaching faculty; our teachers need to be trained to develop the knowledge and skills to address students’ learning challenges,” he said. The Associate Dean of LUMS SOE, Dr. Mariam Chughtai, stated, “Education is the driver of economic growth and the fastest growing sector in Pakistan. We must look at this as an opportunity between the two institutions to impact policy reform”. The Project Director Allied Schools said that the scope of work for both the organizations PGC and LUMS School of Education is very gigantic and weighty to meet with instant and future needs in the field of education across Pakistan where literacy rate, teachers’ professional development and institutional effectiveness are under question. This collaboration between LUMS School of Education and the Punjab Group of Colleges/Allied Schools will engage in high quality education research that will help bridge the gap between theory and practice in the education sector. This will enable graduate students to use the data shared by PGC and Allied Schools for research purposes, and would also be given the option of a full-time residency at PGC over the course of one semester.
