Shah Abdul Latif University, Khairpur was first established in 1976 as a branch of Sindh University Jamshoro and later on in 1986 it started operating as a full-fledged and independent university. Located in the heartland of upper Sindh, Shah Abdul Latif University’s vision is to compete with the leading universities of the world with a comprehensive perspective to impart education to all.
Shah Abdul Latif University carries out various community services that organize social, cultural, educational, gender equity, national and international seminars and friendly environmental activities time to time. Shah Abdul Latif University Botanical Garden and Herbarium (SLUBGH) & Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation (CBC) have collaborated with British Council to dig out water wells and construction of water tanks to store the rain water in the Nara Desert, where ground water resources are limited.
Food and other necessary things for survival and rehabilitation of flood affected and economically depressed people of the area were supplied during fatal flood in the year 2010-11. Shah Abdul Latif setup camps at model schools & main campus of the university for the flood affected, so the children staying in the camps were also been given the basic education. Special scholarships and educational assistance are also provided to the people of the rain and flood affected areas in order to give them a similar chance for quality education.
