In the university context, the academic community bears substantial responsibility for leading impactful research endeavours. The success of such initiatives hinges on various factors, notably access to accurate information, an unwavering commitment to instigate change, and the existence of a robust institutional research support system. Acknowledging the pivotal role of these elements in fostering research excellence, the establishment of the Central Office for Research and Development (CORD) became imperative. CORD's primary mission is to provide crucial support to researchers, nurture their capacity development, and advocate for the adoption of optimal academic practices. Additionally, the Center plays a central role in advancing societal development through a diverse array of research initiatives.


Founded with staunch support from the university and fueled by the dedicated commitment of our accomplished staff, the Center is steadfast in its dedication to overarching objectives that underscore its commitment to research and development. Foremost among these objectives is providing essential support to researchers. CORD recognizes that the foundation of impactful research lies in the resources and guidance available to scholars. Consequently, the Center is committed to ensuring researchers have access to accurate information, cutting-edge tools, and the necessary infrastructure for groundbreaking research.


Moreover, CORD is deeply invested in the capacity development of researchers, aiming to equip them with the essential skills, knowledge, and competencies needed for contemporary research. This involves organizing workshops, seminars, and training programmes that address the evolving needs of researchers across diverse disciplines.


In tandem with this commitment, CORD actively promotes the adoption of best academic practices, serving as a hub for disseminating information about innovative methodologies, ethical standards, and effective research practices. By fostering a culture of continuous improvement and adherence to the highest standards of academic integrity, CORD seeks to elevate the quality and impact of research from the university.


Beyond academia, CORD recognizes its broader societal responsibility, committed to advancing societal development through a spectrum of research initiatives addressing pressing challenges and contributing to community betterment. This outreach underscores the Center's commitment to harnessing the transformative power of research for the greater good.


In conclusion, the Central Office for Research and Development stands as a testament to the university's dedication to research excellence. With a focus on unwavering support, capacity development, and best academic practices, CORD aims to be a driving force in advancing both the scholarly landscape and societal development.
