Academic Year 2011-2012 marked another University’s outstanding performance in research. The University conducted researches not for the sole purpose of compliance but for the reason of serving the community by disseminating findings of community need-based researches. The dissemination of findings is done by presenting research papers during local, national and international conferences where educators and researchers convene. These educators and researchers in turn, conducted seminars and trainings for the benefit of the community as a result of newly acquired information and practices in specific fields.
