March 7, 2005. This week Dr. Shoib Arif resigned from his position as Acting Dean. He says that his Deanship was becoming too stressful and affecting his personal and family life. It was also affecting his true passion of academia. He plans to engage in textile chemistry related research activities.
His research would meet the HEC recommendation for universities to increase research-based publications.
Dr. Hafeez-ur-Rehman has been duly appointed by the management as the replacement Acting Dean.
Quack! Online has also learned that there is a possibility that the management was not happy with Dr. Shoib Arif’s deanship, and thus had been planning to appoint a new dean.
Dr. Zubair Bandukada remains the Dean, though he is on long leave to pursue research activities at the William Lee Innovation Centre, University of Manchester.
