KHURASAN ALUMNI ASSOCIATION (KAA)

Khurasan University (KU) under its Office of International Affairs (OIA) establishes Khurasan Alumni Association (KAA).



Overview

Khurasan University (KU), since its establishment in 2006 as the first private higher education institute in Nangarhar, has been playing a vital role in educating the younger generations of Afghanistan in the field of Higher Education. With over 150 graduates in 5 years, KU has made numerous efforts including, but not limited to, providing students with an appropriate learning environment, recruiting lecturers of higher qualifications, up-dating and maintaining its curriculum with international standards with a belief in the strength of science and research. More than 90% of KU’s graduates are now employed at various national and international organizations and are excelling in their respective fields of management. During the past couple of years with enrollment rate increasing at the rate of approximately 60 % every year, Khurasan has gained the respect of not only the people of Afghanistan –especially eastern region, but also the trust and confidence of the Ministry of Higher Education and Khurasan’s international partners.

In addition to the outstanding domestic reputation and numerous achievements, KU in partnership with its international partners this year became a proud member of ESRUC (Eurasian Silk Road Universities Consortium) and signed its first foreign Memorandum of Agreement on bilateral cooperation with the Ataturk University in Turkey.

In order to remain aware of how education at KU is transforming and enriching the professional and personal lives of its graduates and where our graduates are, what they are engaged in, how they can contribute to academic and socio-economic development of their communities and how KU can help them further enhance their academic capacities, KU deems it wise, appropriate and beneficial to establish Khurasan Alumni Association (KAA). The KAA will be dedicated to establishing a mutually beneficial relationship between the alumni and Khurasan Univeristy (KU).
