Message from the Vice-Chancellor

Prof. M Sunil Shantha

Since its founding in 1996, the Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka has grown to be known for the excellence of its teaching, research, and service to local, national and international communities. As we look to the future one thing is certain- knowledge will be a key resource and will be highly sought-after around the globe. Our challenge is to help to generate ideas that will benefit the society, and to educate and train people to work in fields where they will be valued both for their specialized knowledge and for their ability to apply it to solve problems.  We are constantly responding to the challenges of a changing higher education sector by defining our strengths and building on our distinctive character and identity.

We have over 7000 students studying for undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications across disciplines such as Agriculture, Applied Sciences, Geomatics, Management, Social Sciences & Languages, Computing, Technology and Medicine. We are in a quest to be an internationally acclaimed centre of excellence in higher learning to produce dynamic leaders and nation builders to guide the destiny of Sri Lanka.

It is important that we stay close to our wider communities of interest and at the forefront of work-integrated learning and place emphasis on continued professional development while providing support necessary to succeed. These features of the University make it a challenging, exciting and fulfilling place to work. If, like us, you are committed to pursuit excellence, the Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka could be the best place to begin the next phase of your career.
