GCU Lahore is a modern, demand-driven, futuristic, quality
conscious and affordable public university. The University wishes to
build its future through internationally recognised research work,
scholarship and learning within a distinctive scholarly environment.
We are committed to be a research led institution that
values knowledge and learning for their own sake, as well as for the
cultural, social and economic benefits it offers. We are committed
to the dissemination of knowledge and learning in an environment in
which leading academicians engage their pupils in rigorous
intellectual activity. We focus increasingly on the
“learner-centred” approach to education and the promotion of
research activities. Our plans embrace three additional strategic
directions: institutional collaboration, international links and
open-learning to increase flexibility and interaction. We aim to
extend the University's reach and its capacity for research

excellence can be combined with opportunities for personal
development, enabling individuals to make their own future. We

This, we believe, is the best means of promoting creativity and
generating innovative solutions to problems.

high quality. We ensure that our activities are carried out

providing best possible opportunities to all staff members and
