Dear Students; Colleagues; Partners,
The University of Prishtina, “Hasan Prishtna,” is not only the largest academic institution in Kosovo by number of students and staff, but is, furthermore, the university who has the greatest impact on all institutional segments of our country.
The prominent role of the University of Prishtina, within the territory of Kosovo and beyond, stems from the significance of its rich historical past, in addition to the contribution that research activities conducted at the university have on lives of citizens.
I take on the current mandate as Rector with great responsibility, being fully aware of the extraordinary importance that the University of Prishtina has for the future of students and citizens of the Republic of Kosovo alike. Above all, I reaffirm my willingness to do all that is in my power for contributing to the transformation and development of the UP as a credible regional and international academic institution.
During the upcoming 4-year term, my main goal is to foster an innovative ‘study culture’ built on quality assurance, market-oriented programs which responds to employers’ needs and the promotion of artistic/cultural activities in various fields.
As part of my vision, I aim for the University of Prishtina to be closer to our community through the promotion of initiatives that are important to citizens. Furthermore, I aim for the university to function as a pole for professional and
My second objective is to transform the University of Prishtina into a studentoriented institution, offering a variety of qualifications and programs of study that well-respond to the need of the market. By supporting the development of a qualitative curriculum founded in applied research and in an inspiring learning environment, I aim to further the advancement of this institution, without neglecting sports and cultural activities. In addition to their academic development, students should be presented with opportunities to develop a meaningful interaction with their immediate community as well as with opportunities to establish long-lasting social and cultural ties with peers in different regions.
I am fully aware that the path for achieving such goals within my four-year mandate requires commitment, determination, consistency at managerial level and meaningful cooperation with all relevant stakeholders. It is within this scope that I seek close cooperation with students, academic and support staff within principles of full transparency and effective communication with stakeholders throughout my mandate.
