Syed Babar Ali inaugurates LUMS School of Education

LAHORE: The launch ceremony of the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) Syed Ahsan Ali and Syed Maratib Ali School of Education (SOE) was held on Monday at the university’s premises.

The event, hosted by Syed Babar Ali, LUMS founder and pro-chancellor, was attended by his family including the grandchildren of Syed Ahsan Ali and Syed  Maratib Ali, along with LUMS vice chancellor, SOE dean, students, faculty, and key stakeholders of SOE, including partners, donors and prominent people from the government and the education sector. The event was attended by Shahid Hussain, member of LUMS Management Committee, MGSHSS Dean Dr Kamran Asdar, SBASSE Dean Dr Shahid Masood, Osman Khalid Waheed, member of LUMS Management Committee, and Alnoor Bhimani, interim Dean of SDSB.

Dr. Tahir Andrabi, the inaugural dean of SOE, made an impactful speech at the ceremony, highlighting the importance of Syed Babar Ali’s role in establishing LUMS as a centre of excellence in the region. He said, “The idea of SOE took root with a series of conversations between me and Syed Babar Ali, who had a vision which I fully agreed with. As we look at Pakistan and talk about the various issues the country faces, one starts thinking about solutions. One realises that no matter what problem one looks at, the answer lies in fixing education. Education is at the root of how we start rebuilding and reimagining this country and eventually start reforming it.”
