Centre for Human Resource & Career Development

Director Message


The Centre for Human Resource and Career Development - CHRCD, is an institute that has been established primarily for the training and development of the faculty of University of Peshawar through general and tailor-made programs which are systematically designed for uplifting and upgrading the caliber of the Teaching as well as Administrative personnel. So far, we have turned every stone possible to cater for the needs of all the employees of this Mother University and provide them with the trainings and the directions they need to be able to serve it in ways better than before.

The concept behind CHRCD is approximately three decades old, the pivotal theme of which was to invest in the creation, training and development of such a workforce for the University of Peshawar that will yield for the times to come. As in the words of Aristotle:

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit”

It is indeed a matter of great pleasure and privilege for me to lead this prestigious Centre. I must say, it would not have been possible without the un-failing and whole-hearted efforts of my dedicated team members who are always trying hard to elevate the image of our prestigious Centre to its pinnacle.
