Islamabad, June 12, 2013 (PPI-OT): U.S. Embassy Charge d’affaires’ Ambassador Richard Hoagland congratulated students and faculty of COMSATS Institute of Information Technology on the formation of the COMSATS Association of American Graduates, an association of more than 60 faculty members who have received PhDs in the United States through partnerships with U.S. universities in North Dakota and Illinois. COMSATS formed the Association to provide opportunities for these alumni to network and compare experiences.
At the inaugural event hosted by COMSATS Rector Dr. Syed Muhammad Junaid Zaid, Ambassador Hoagland congratulated participants:
Academic ties between the United States and Pakistan are critical to ensuring mutual understanding. They also play a key role in supporting Pakistan’s economic and social development. I congratulate COMSATS both on its successful efforts to build productive linkages with U.S. universities and continued engagement with this alumni association. The Embassy is pleased to work with you in these efforts and looks forward to furthering our cooperation with the good work you are doing.
