GWADAR: Newly appoin­ted vice chancellor of the University of Turbat (UoT) Prof Dr Jan Mohammad has said that he would make every effort to take the institution to the new heights of development with the support of faculty and administrative staff.

Mr Jan, who assumed charge the other day, said that the standard of learning would be enhanced and the youth would be equipped with the practical knowledge.

The vice chancellor thanked the faculty members and admin staff for welcoming him warmly to the university.
