Department of Alumni Relations

About Department of Alumni Relations


Since its inception in 1882 at Lahore (now in Pakistan), Panjab University has a long tradition of pursuing excellence in teaching and research. After partition, the University continued in its present form under a fresh legislative enactment of October 1, 1947. In the finest global tradition of the reputed seats of learning, which cherish links with their former students for mutual pride and enrichment, Panjab University Senate decided to create a Department of Alumni Relations in March 1969. The major objectives of the Department are to:

  1. establish a link with the PU alumni and enroll them as members;
  2. establish liaison between Panjab University Alumni Association (PUAA) and similar other associations at the universities in the country and abroad;
  3. raise various endowment funds and award stipends out of it to the deserving students on need-cum-merit basis;
  4. institute and disburse scholarships, fellowships, medals, awards, etc. to the meritorious students of the university out of the corpus of the Association;
  5. impart identity to its members by issuing them with photo-identity cards;
  6. seek donations from alumni and potential donors for promoting various righteous activities of the Association;
  7. suggest ways and means for the participation of the Association in the working of the University;
  8. arrange get together of the alumni and social/cultural functions of the alumni;
  9. send birthday greeting cards to its members to impart personal touch and interaction with them;
  10. honour distinguished alumni of PU, who have brought national/global acclaim in their respective domains;
