STRATEGIC PRIORITY AREA TWO:

NETWORKING AND LINKAGES ESTABLISHMENT

No institution can grow, flourish and upscale in isolation, rather there is bound to be an ever increasing interaction, coordination, networking and linkages amongst alumni, friends, corporations, institutions, foundations and community at large. Achievement of strategic objectives and priorities depends largely on sustained supply of financial, material and technical resources which could only be secured in case of strong bonding with diverse stakeholders and partner organizations. To achieve unprecedented success in quality education, excellence in research and sustain growth in diverse spheres, establishing and maintaining linkages and networking with stakeholders is of paramount importance.

To promote further accomplishment in quality education, pioneering research and innovative discoveries, the MUL needs to cultivate strategic relationships with donor organizations, development sector GOs and NGOs, research based institutions, Alumni association, individuals and philanthropists for continued support in terms of money, talent, services and technical support.
