Professor Dr. Goudarz Sadeghi Hashjin whose detailed CV appears below has been an outstanding faculty member and an influential executive authority during his career. His success stories, specifically during the period he was the chancellor of Urmia University, are heard frequently from his colleagues and the staff of Urmia University. He has developed a broad view of university mission and the unique synergistic power of university dynamics in shaping the overall form and orientation of the society, and zealously acts accordingly. Since he has started his chancellorship here in UMA, he has managed to inject a fresh momentum into the university’s already fast-fledging spirit.

He has been and is a lively citizen in general and he firmly believes in employing (and employs) all possible media in educating the youth in the route to make the world a better place to live for all. Raising responsible citizens through promoting liveliness, entrepreneurship, dynamicity and spirituality tops his agenda here in UMA.
