Native name in infobox[edit]

The native name for SUT is not shown correctly on the right hand side infobox. My bet is the infobox for universities does not comprehend unicode characters. How can it be fixed? Any idea anyone? Ebright82 (talk) 00:04, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Actually, it's correct. Shervink (talk) 11:35, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
If I check it on my personal notebook PC, it is shown correct. If I check on lab PCs, it shows a bunch of squares on the right hand side but the rest of the article looks right. The difference: on my laptop I have changed the settings on my notebook to show "non-unicode programs to use Farsi", but this option is not checked on lab PCs.Ebright82 07:04, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Interesting! Shervink 11:14, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Funded by?[edit]

I knew that Sharif (aryamehr) Uni was funded directly by the kingdom (before revolution) and not by ministry of science. also after revolution there seems to be a special interest by the different governments of Iran in SUT that might have impact on funding.

Can someone confirm this? If so, it might be interesting to add a line or 2 on this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.70.14.241 (talk) 17:55, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Owned by government[edit]

It is funded by the government , its last year budjet was about 25 million $ (from sharifdaily.com) and other universities not accept any money paid to Sharif more than others , they argue such desicions , and claim that this would be discrimination between universities .

NSC[edit]

Describing a small organization like NSC in details, like how many publications it has and how good it is for students, is not proper for a university page. I am limiting it to a few sentences for the centers, but even having description of research centers in the main article can be debated. --Ebright82 (talk) 01:11, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

  • I made some real 'reforms' to the article and there is no way NSC's long description can fit in. If we want to do so, you HAVE to do same with other research institutes. Instead, try to look at the notability standards and add your NSC as a separate article. This more impressing than adding the address and phone in the middle of the article. --Ebright82 (talk) 02:23, 18 November 2008 (UTC)


Some clean-up done[edit]

So I spent some time and cleaned up the article to follow Wikipedia:UNIGUIDE. Please read that guide before making changes. Also, please note the usual stuff about Wikipedia: note that "Wikipedia is not the place for academic boosterism" and it certainly is not a place for advertisements. --Ebright82 (talk) 03:58, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks a lot. I appreciate your efforts.--M samadi (talk) 11:23, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Endowment[edit]

I really want to know what the university's endowment is. Surely it is published somwhere?!
