Ayatollah Hashemi's Recommendations for the Future of IAU

Friday, January 13, 2017 - 00:59

Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani, one of the founders of Islamic Azad University and the head of its board of trustees, passed away on Sunday, 8th of January at the age of 82 but left timeless guidelines that could be used to provide services to Iranian people

Here are some of his observations and recommendations for the future of Islamic Azad University.

“The university has no financial benefit for its founders. None of us have a margin or share in this university. The sole objective in opening the IAU has been to fulfill the needs of the people by relying on themselves.”

"All of these constructive achievements came about with God and the good of His people in mind, and with the aim of developing knowledge and allowing for the progress of the country.”

“A few years ago, IAU was more focused on quantitative development. That focus has now shifted towards qualitative development. One of the major highlights of IAU is the way it equalizes and provides higher education for people in all villages and towns, and especially for young women.”

“People must see the result of scientific investigations in their life. One of the most important research areas of the Islamic Azad University is plasma physics, which has potential in protecting the environment and removing waste pollution. In this regard, IAU has taken important measures, and plans are in place to further develop these technologies.”

“Establishing university entities around the country is the best example of educational justice that many European countries, especially the UK, have incorporated into their programs. IAU belongs to all the people and its capital is its students, which are the youths of the Iranian people.”

Ayatollah Rafsanjani noted the increase of the number of women in higher education with satisfaction as one of the achievements of all universities, particularly IAU and stated “this is an Islamic activity, and how misled were the wrongdoers who prevented women from studying.”

“Aside from state universities and Higher Education Centers, the Islamic Azad University is a major force in Iranian academia, with 450 branches, one million and 800 thousand students, 11 thousand laboratories and workshops, 70 thousand faculty members, and several international branches. It is the largest university in the world in terms of student presence,”

“During domestic and foreign calls and meetings, we have been told repeatedly we should be proud of the Islamic Azad University; because in just 30 years, a university with so many facilities and such a high level of knowledge is indeed a monumental achievement.”

"The creation of jobs, innovation, invention and commercialization of academic output are the most important national requirements which guide the plans and programs of the university."

“...as a result of the JCPOA, Iran has been invited to join the ITER project, the seven countries working in France to create the first fusion-based power plant, practically bringing the energy of a new sun to the Earth.”
