Education has always been my passion, because I truly believe that quality education is the most important aspect of a nation. Sri Lanka has the potential and the ability to achieve amazing heights, but to do this we need educated people who have had the exposure offered outside the limitations of geography.
It has therefore always been my aspiration, to fulfi l this requirement. To ensure that Sri Lankans have the opportunity to follow their passions, to have access to the best educators and universities and to be able to use that knowledge to improve themselves and this country.
It is my greatest honour, to be a part of a programme which is designed to cater to the many needs of higher education, while ensuring that each university is ranked among the leading universities in its respective country and the world. My fervent wish is that this will give all of you the ability to follow your dreams and aspirations.
