In the Name of Allah

Undoubtedly reaching knowledge and perfection has always been one of the main concerns of the people living throughout the history of this country. Training great scholars and famous scientists of this land is the indicative of the prominence and importance of thought and knowledge among the Iranian and this concern has appeared and flourished in various eras.

The Holy Quran glorifies the position of true believers and scientists by saying:

«یَرْفَعِ اللَّهُ الَّذِینَ آمَنُوا مِنْکُمْ وَ الَّذِینَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ دَرَجاتٍ»

This signifies the elevated role and position of learning. What is necessary is ceaseless attempt and perseverance for learning, concern towards theoretical and applied research, and flourishing of the theories in practical domains so that the economic prosperity and production of wealth can be achieved for the country by the plan of the ruling government.

Certainly, producing knowledge along with true belief is the main responsibility of the academic centers and in order to reach this superb ideal and create a revolutionary university, a scientific spirit of love of knowledge and hope and prudence must be predominant in the society and for reaching this purpose and enhancing the scientific horizons of the country, the tireless and continuous attempts of university members are required. Based on the inherent mission of the universities, as the main pillar of the progress and as the main instrument of gaining cultural, economic and political progress, the academic members have a very important responsibility to facilitate the access to such assets. Accordingly, Hormozgan University, due to high industrial capacities and rich natural resources in the province, demands a determined attempt for finding its important and substantial role in enhancing the scientific, cultural and social atmosphere of the society and this ideal cannot be attained without the wholehearted attempts of all respectful students, faculty members and administrative staff.

I hope that all of us as members of the large family of scientific community be able to use our commitment, expertise, knowledge and technician, pay attention to ethical and humanitarian considerations, and with a true belief and permanent and steadfast endeavor try our best to reach knowledge and have a share in the progress of our country towards reaching the higher levels of knowledge and research.

Since the main responsibility of universities is offering a high quality education and research, with the help of Almighty we will try, during the educational years, by the efficient use of the available equipment and facilities, planning, self-confidence and optimum use of the time create a condition which Hormozgan University, as the superordinate educational center in the province, deserves.

It is hoped that with the help of Almighty and considerations of Vali Asr (peace be upon him) we try our best to reach internal purity, progress and scientific development and by naturalization of the achievements create a unique asset for the progress of the country and I also in my turn hope that with the help of academic and administrative staff of the University play a benevolent and sincere role in the development of this academic center.
