The nomination was recommended by a high powered search committee, constituted by the board almost six months earlier. The committee was headed by Vice-Chancellor of the University of Peshawar Professor Rasool Jan and comprised of Mohammad Ali Shahzad, provincial secretary Higher Education, Archives and Libraries Professor Nasser Ali Khan, Vice-Chancellor, University of Haripur, Dr Khalid Khan, and Attaullah Shah, deputy secretary to governor, besides Reverend Shahzad Murad, a nominee of the Bishop, Diocese of Peshawar.
The post of the principal was advertised twice in the media and the committee after having thorough examination of a total of 50 candidates, who had applied in response to both the advertisements, found Dr Nayar Fardous at the top of the list.
Mr Fardous has served a number of prestigious educational institutions.
