Following decades of underinvestment, the renewed realization of the Government of Pakistan of the importance of the higher education sector towards fuelling economic growth led to the establishment of the Higher Education Commission in 2002. Founded by Presidential Ordinance No. LIII In September 2002, the Commission was entrusted with a broad mandate to review, improve, and promote the higher education and research sector in Pakistan. Since its inception, the Higher Education Commission has embarked on a systematic process of implementing the five-year reform agenda outlined in the HEC Medium Term Development Framework (MTDF).

Access, quality, and relevance have been identified as key challenges facing the sector. To address these challenges, a comprehensive strategy has been defined that identifies the core strategic aims for reform as Faculty Development, Improving Access, Excellence in Learning and Research, and Relevance to National Priorities.
