Along their work, the presidency of the Paktia University worked hardly to reactivate the website for the University in order to share the achievements and researchs through it with people. Alhamdulillah, problems are resolved in this regard and the website is reactivated.
We expect from the responsibles of IT of the Ministry of Higher Education to be very careful with the websites of all Universities in the next time, so that Universities can share their information with people.

These issues are preserved in the plan and policy of Higher Education. The strategic plan of Paktia University is also based upon this policy. This will make it to bring public prosperity, fallow and prioritize national values, and achieve good international position and credit.
Our responsibility in this regard is to provide opportunities for learning and research for all of those who are eligible based on the requirements of higher education. This is because to have enough professionals and experienced cadres to brighten and stabilize the future of Afghanistan, and the current problems are to be solved of the country.
In the upcoming years, we will focus more on the quality in order to offer standard education equivalent to the standard education of international universities.
