Launching of web portal for Higher Education Department Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is an important step towards merit and transparency. The wave of adoption of e-government technology is increasingly gaining momentum in the developing countries for enhancing good governance capabilities of public organizations.

The priority of our government is to bring change through education. It is in the manifesto of our party and we are bound to achieve the goals set by our leadership.
The Provincial Government had allocated Rs. 500 million as Chief Minister Endowment fund for those brilliant students, who because of poverty could not afford higher studies in the educational institutions.

In order to uplift the standards of Higher Education, the Department has also started imparting 4 Year BS degree program in the public colleges. Government is also aware of the financial constraints faced by the children of our province seeking Higher Education and that is the reason that a Higher Education endowment Fund worth Rs. 300 million is also established for award of scholarships to students of BS- 4 Year Program in the Government Colleges

In order to bring department at par with the standards of modern world, the process of reforms has also been initiated within the department. The purpose is to restructure the Department to cope with the challenges of tomorrows. I take this great opportunity to request you to encourage us by giving necessary advice, guidance and positive criticism in this regard. Yours suggestions/ inputs will always welcome.

Knowledge is the only tool for social transformation, intellectual growth and economic development. Knowing the fact, every nation concentrates upon educating its citizens spending a sizable portion of its budget every year. The importance of education in the life of an individual cannot be overstated. It shapes individuals in their formative years and imbues them with values that would govern all their choices in life. Higher Education Department aims at imparting a complete and quality education in the true sense of the word, not only by way of formidably high academic standards, but also by developing all faculties – intellectual, physical and spiritual. Our endeavor is to enable students to develop an analytical mind, intellectual curiosity, moral integrity, strong sense of values, a disciplined life style and a feeling of companionship among students that will transcend social, communal, religious and provincial prejudices.

The 21st Century is marked with globalization, making knowledge also a shared and joint asset. Basic information, the present base of knowledge and advance research work is now available on the internet to all and sundry around the global village. One only needs to have possession of the basic Information technology and elementary knowledge of operating the same for getting benefit from the vast bank of knowledge available.

The theme of the Department is “Education for all” without distinguishing religion, cast, and states. The Higher Education Department (HED) not only producing curricular activities but also polishing the generation by extra-curricular activities.

A new education philosophy evolved and the curriculum was developed to suit the needs of the multi ethnic, multi religious and multi lingual society. The aims of education took a different dimension of developing a balance personality in a pluralistic society.

New innovations are being added to the system providing educational opportunities, opening a gateway to the student population to cope with the developments of the 21st century knowledge society.
