Mission: Information not localized

Vision: For a knowledge-based economy, the university becomes a key element of innovation systems both as a creator of new knowledge and ideas based on research, and as a provider of human capital. The purpose of the Vision 2030 Strategic Framework is to articulate an action plan that defines a path to elevate UAF's position as one of the internationally recognized research universities and a gatewaytoknowledgeforagriculturalandruraldevelopment in Pakistan. It provides the overarching themes for more detailed plans that will be based on imperatives current for the time and that will shape strategic thinking during the respective planning cycles in the future years. Likewise, for UAF to emerge and stay among the top 100 universities of the world in agricultural sciences by 2030 will require innovative renewal in its approach to core and support functions to build up its strengths, exploit its competitive advantages and focus on those dimensions that will provide us with the distinctive edge that sets us apart from others
