To improve the academic facilities of remote areas former Governor of Punjab Lt General (Rtd) Khalid Maqbool opened up sub-campuses of the public sector universities with a vision to transform them into independent universities in future. With this vision, in 1999 the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad opened its Sub-Campus College of Agriculture, DG Khan and later Sub-Campus of BZU was established in 2004 by Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan. The campuses have grown different departments such as Agriculture, Rural Sociology, MBA etc. with many new departments in the pipeline.
