LUMS establishes School of Education

Staff Report

The Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) announces the establishment of a School of Education following the approval of the Board of Trustees. The School of Education joins as the fifth school at LUMS after the already established schools of Business, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science and Engineering, and Law.

The exploratory phase for a LUMS School of Education was initiated in October 2015, with funding from the Babar Ali Foundation and the objective of enabling LUMS to intervene as a thought leader and change maker in a rapidly expanding educational milieu of Pakistan. The Planning Committee of the project included LUMS Pro-Chancellor Syed Babar Ali, LUMS Management Committee member Osman Khalid Waheed, and LUMS Vice Chancellor, Prof Dr. Sohail H. Naqvi, with Dr. Tahir Andrabi, Professor of Economics at Pomona College, as Executive Director, and Dr. Mariam Chughtai, Doctorate in Education from Harvard University, as Associate Director of the LUMS School of Education Project. Dr. Asim Ijaz Khwaja, Professor of International Finance and Development at Harvard Kennedy School, and Dr. Faisal Bari, Associate Professor of Economics at LUMS, were key advisors to the team.

Over the course of the project phase, the team established local, regional and international linkages through events such as the inaugural Education Roundtable at LUMS, in March 2016, convening academics, practitioners, and policy experts with the aim of understanding disparate perspectives on education reform in Pakistan. Similarly, in May 2016, an Education Roundtable at Harvard University seeded partnerships for the project internationally with top universities and education faculty from Harvard, Stanford, MIT, NYU, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, and Northwestern, amongst others. Faculty from these universities will comprise the International Advisory Board for the newly established LUMS School of Education. The network of partners that the LUMS School of Education project has been developing is central not only to its policy and social impact but also contributes to establishing a strong national footprint and a globally connected position.

Three kinds of programmes will be offered under the School: A Masters in Education Policy, Leadership and Management, starting in Fall 2018; a Minor in Education for LUMS undergraduate students; and a Professional Education Institute for Policy and Practice, to actively engage and provide trainings to the public, private, non-profit, and donor sectors of education in the country.

The LUMS School of Education will operate at the crucial nexus of research, policy and practice, supporting a faculty that is internationally competitive, connected, and relevant. The curriculum, featuring extensive field engagement, will produce graduates capable of becoming strategic leaders, policy researchers, and reflective practitioners, distinctly placed to direct and shape a reimagined and vibrant education reform agenda for Pakistan.

About LUMS: The Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) is a world class academic institution, established in 1985. LUMS is operating four schools that are Suleman Dawood School of Business, Mushtaq Ahmad Gurmani School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering and Shaikh Ahmad Hassan School of Law. Since its inception, LUMS has strived to achieve the aim of imparting world class education while encouraging research and intellectual growth in the country.
