New university taking liberal arts approach Nepal Now

Unfortunately, Nepal’s universities do not, in general, enjoy good reputations. Politicization is a main reason for that. But a new institution, University of Nepal, plans to avoid that pitfall by establishing itself as a public university, governed by a board of trustees. More importantly, says today’s guest and member of the development board, Dovan Rai, UoN will offer a liberal arts education. Graduates will be equipped to deal with a broad range of future challenges, not only those contained within their field of specialization. To be located in Nawalparasi district, in south-central Nepal, UoN could be opening its doors as soon as two years from now.
