Ms Fajar Rafi (BS 2020) was awarded Dr Rafia Hassan Gold medal in the 1st Convocation of Institute of Applied Psychology. Prof Dr Rafia Hasan, an eminent academician in Psychology went to her heavenly abode on the 27th January 2022 (may her soul rest in peace).

Her seminal contributions to the field of Psychology in Pakistan and with special reference to her role in pioneering and extending the scope of this department (now an Institute) of Applied Psychology PU, merited that her name be carved in history. So her daughters, Nada Hasan and Dr Naveed Henderson decided in what better way to remember her than by giving out a gold medal of excellence in her name to the IAP BSc Program, so that each coming year students could aspire to build a name for themselves by following the path of Dr Rafia Hasan.
