VISION 2025: Kardan University Launches its Strategic Plan for 2021-2025

Kardan University launched its strategic plan through a virtual unveiling ceremony on July 10, 2021, with the participation of the University's leadership, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and strategic partners. The ceremony included the remarks by Mr. Roeen Rahmani, Kardan University's Chancellor, and Mr. Mirwais Nahzat, Kardan University's Chief Operating Officer on the University's VISION 2025, which focuses on excellence and growth.

"This planning effort demonstrates Kardan University's vision of excellence, our unrelenting pursuit of innovation in the higher education sector, and our continued ascent as a leading university in Afghanistan. I am immensely grateful to the Strategic Planning Taskforce, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and our strategic partners for their invaluable insights and contributions throughout this planning effort," said Chancellor Roeen Rahmani. He added, "With the implementation of this bold and ambitious plan, I am confident that there is no limit to what we can achieve together at Kardan University. With much excitement and optimism, I look forward to working with each of you over the next five years to realize Vision 2025."

Kardan University's new strategic plan consists of five strategic objectives, two strategic initiatives, and five core values. The strategic objectives include academic expansion and excellence, student and alumni success, research excellence, brand identity, and institutional development. Furthermore, the establishment of Centers of Excellence and Kardan Foundation are two strategic initiatives of Kardan University for the next five years.

Kardan University delivered all of its commitments mentioned in the Vision of Excellence, the University's Strategic Plan for 2015-2020. "At the initial strategic plan, we committed to five major strategic objectives. These were student professional growth, faculty and research excellence, innovation and growth, development of policies and procedures, and improved public engagement. There are some lessons learned that we can take away from our initial strategic plan. We need to do a greater job of student retention and satisfaction, which will require additional efforts. We also need to continue investments in infrastructure and establish centers of excellence,” said Mirwais Nahzat, Chief Operating Officer.

The strategic planning process is led by the University's Strategic Planning Taskforce (PTF) under the leadership of Chancellor Roeen Rahmani. The PTF brings together University leaders, managers, faculty members, and staff to articulate and oversee a robust strategic direction for the University over the next five years. Under the direction of the PTF, Kardan University's teams will work collaboratively to integrate our key stakeholders' perspectives into the strategic planning processes, ensuring participatory and inclusive engagement at the assessment, planning, execution, and continuous improvement phases.

The Strategic Planning Taskforce (PTF) will measure progress against this Strategy using a robust monitoring and evaluation framework primarily through monitoring, evaluation, and reporting against five key performance indicators.
