The members include Jiban Khadka, Laxmi Paudyal, Roshan Thapa, Dinesh Kumar Thapa, Usha Bhusal, Pooja Karki, Lila Bishwakarma, Sanjay Timalsina and Bishwanatha Kandel. Established in 1997, KU School of Education(KUSoEd) has been offering higher education at the Master, Master of Philosophy and Doctorate levels.

Addressing the function on Friday, KUSoEd Dean Prof. Mahesh Nath Parajuli highlighted the need to develop a network of graduates and the school for mutual learning and development and for enhancing the quality of education across the country. The 1,350 KUSoEd graduates so far include 110 PhDs,300 MPhils, 600 MEds (Master of Education) and 300 PGDs (Post-graduate diploma).
