The Speech of the University President for the Sixth Round of Graduation Ceremony
Dignified attendants of the Sixth Round of Graduates at the University of Human Development…
Dear students of the Sixth Round of Graduates of our university
First and foremost, on my behalf of myself and the members of the university council I genially congratulate you in this day, that with the help of your potential, your family and loved one, your devoted teachers and all the university staff who, thank Allah, helped you to celebrate this day passing the four years of university successfully.
It is evident to all that the University of Human Development for the past 9 years has trodden key academic steps. This was accomplished because the university has taken into consideration all the academic regulations, also the university’s commitment to the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research on one hand, and implementing all the guidelines given by Prof. Dr. Ali Qaradaghi on the other hand. Prof. Dr. Ali Qaradaghi has always been supportive of the university, both morally and financially, for improvement in the educational process and prosperity for the university. Thus, on the behalf of everyone we thank and pay our gratitude to him again.
In the past two year, and for the first time, the national ranking for universities in Kurdistan was carried out, and for two successive years the University of Human Development was the top university among all the universities in Kurdistan. Beside this, the university was the top university among the private universities in Iraq this year according to the Webometrics international ranking. All these were due to the unremitting academic efforts put forth by the staff of the presidency, faculty members, employees and our dear students. To be the top university among all the universities in Kurdistan was not an easy job, but all the academic steps that the university followed have made it possible. Hence, being the top university for this year and the coming years is our university's focal objective. Apart for all that is mentioned, the university is proceeding in advancing in other international rankings, and this is a vision for the future motivating the university to exert more endeavors to make it true.
Dear graduates of the Sixth Round…
We are delighted to announce that our university is certified by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research/ the Federal Government of Iraq, and our students can further pursue their higher education in universities around the world.

By the end, I hope that you would serve our beloved Kurdistan each in your own domain and specialty and once again congratulations; may you always be successful.
