Who are Alumni?
The word 'alumni' is derived from the Latin noun 'alere' and means former pupil or student. All graduates and former students of the Islamia University of Bahawalpur who have successfully completed their Bachelor's, Master's, M.Phil or Ph.D degrees are considered alumni of the University. This includes graduates of the sub-campuses Bahwalnagar and Rahim Yar Khan.
The Islamia University of Bahawalpur has a rich heritage that dates back to the founding year (1975) of the University and as such the academic and professional journey of our Alumni spans decades. The University is very proud of the accomplishments of our graduates and the contribution that they have given to their chosen industries, professions and communities. Today our alumni are found in every age group and in all the major cities of Pakistan and abroad.
The Islamia University would like to benefit from the experience and diversity of its Alumni and thus has started a very much needed Alumni Association, formally known as "Islamians Alumni Association" or IAA for short. Islamians Alumni Association is formed to bring together students, staff and graduates to support the University in the realization of its vision and to encourage their involvement within the University and build networks through social, professional, intellectual and educational activities.
Members of the Alumni Association who settle their annual dues are considered active members. As such they are entitled to nominate and elect the Executive Committees of their Chapters, and enjoy the Alumni Associations benefits.
No matter where you are or when you attended the university, you are part of the Islamians Alumni family!!

Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success."
