Over the years, she ascended through the ranks, eventually becoming a Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Psychology. Her dedication and expertise led her to serve in various administrative roles, including Deputy Director of the Residential Coaching Academy and Deputy Proctor.

With a PhD in Political Psychology, earned through research conducted at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi, and AMU, Ms. Khatoon brings a wealth of academic experience to her new role.

As the third central university to appoint a woman Vice Chancellor, AMU sets a precedent for gender representation in academic leadership, paving the way for future generations of women scholars.
