At Lumbini Buddhist University, the Office of the Registrar is the cornerstone of our administrative and financial operations, meticulously overseeing the university’s day-to-day functioning. Appointed by the esteemed Chancellor, who also serves as the Prime Minister of Nepal, the Registrar carries the weighty responsibility of ensuring that the university operates smoothly and in accordance with its mission and values.
As a multifaceted role, the Registrar not only administers the university’s vital administrative and financial activities but also steps into the shoes of a Rector, bridging the gap in our operational framework where a specific provision for the Rector’s appointment may be absent. This dual role underscores the Registrar’s significance in maintaining the university’s operational integrity.
From managing student records and academic programs to overseeing financial transactions and institutional compliance, the Office of the Registrar plays an indispensable role in facilitating the educational journey of our students. It ensures that the university’s academic and administrative processes align seamlessly, allowing our students and faculty to focus on their pursuit of knowledge and spiritual growth.
The Office of the Registrar at Lumbini Buddhist University serves as a guardian of our institution’s ideals, ensuring that our operations are guided by the principles of wisdom, compassion, and mindfulness that lie at the core of Buddhist teachings. It exemplifies the commitment to excellence and dedication to the university’s mission, acting as the custodian of our administrative and financial wellbeing.
I would like to welcome you to Lumbini Buddhist University.
Lumbini Buddhist University is, uniquely, committed to disseminate, teach and research philosophy, education, culture, history of Buddhism. At the same time, based on a learner-centric, interdisciplinary approach, the University offers in its constituent and affiliated campuses/colleges diverse academic programs ranging from Law through Travel and Tourism Management to Engineering, Archaeology, and Agroforestry. It offers programs incorporating courses on core and applied Buddhism and other disciplines in Bachelor, Master, and Doctor of Philosophy levels. Currently, 1200 learners are actively engaged in about thirty various programs in the Faculty of Buddhist Studies, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the School of Development Studies and Applied Sciences. The University, instead of focusing on transmitting and memorizing information, offers its learners an opportunity to develop transferable and practical skills, problem-solving and critical thinking, and 21st-century skills with a collaborative learning process. Considering the changing pedagogy of the COVID -19 Pandemic situations, the University is moving forward from “lecture-only mode of teaching” to multimodal, blended (a combination of virtual and face-to-face) engaging learners in their in-class and out-class activities so that learners, rather than just being passive listeners, will be engaged as active and independent agents in the process of constructing knowledge, skills, and competencies.
Finally, I would like to express my words of gratitude to all teaching and administrative staff, students, researchers, students’ guardians, government officials, political leaders, and local people for supporting and encouraging us during the formative years of the University with your patience, kindness, and empathy. I am looking forward to collaborating with you in the days to come.
Thanking You all!
Dr. Tilak Ram Acharya
