We are approaching the conclusion of a demanding and rewarding process of inviting new faculty members to join the teaching ministry of Edwardes College. Over a dozen posts were advertised between July and August, and altogether about 615 applications were received. Heads of the departments concerned compiled short lists of applicants who were then interviewed by a Selection Committee consisting of the Principal, two Vice Principals, Director of Studies, Senior Faculty Member, Women’s Officer, Head of Department, and Finance Director. Interviews were held last week and this week.
I am happy to announce the following appointments:
Chemistry: Ms. Saiqa Nader M.Sc. (Peshawar), B.Sc. (Gomal)
Mr. M. Shahid Iqbal M.Phil. & M.Sc. (Peshawar)
Dr. Zafar Kaifi Ph.D. (Peshawar), M.S. (New South Wales),
M.Sc. (Peshawar), B.Sc. (Govt. Degree Peshawar),

Urdu: Dr. Bismina Siraj Ph.D. & M.Phil. (Qurtuba), Mr. Zubair Shah M.A. (Oriental Lahore), B.A. (Peshawar)

Some of these new faculty are in the process of acquiring further degrees. Some have already begun teaching in the last day or so, and some will begin next week. Further details of the new faculty will be published on the Edwardes website and in the press. About six appointments are pending in other fields.
I am very grateful to the Selection Committee and the Heads of Departments for their dedicated work to bring these gifted and promising scholar teachers to Edwardes.
Please welcome these new members of our community.
