The establishment of any university in Bangladesh is the reflection of the country’s national aspiration and dream—it is expected that the apex academic institution will work towards producing the best graduates who will dedicate themselves to making the country great by braving the challenges of the century. Therefore, as the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Islamic University, one of my missions will be to work with the university team to transform it into one of the top-ranking universities of Bangladesh and enhance its international stature. We are committed to realizing the vision and mission set out by our government under the guidance of the Honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina—to transform Bangladesh into a developed country. As per the national strategic plan, Islamic University prioritizes rigorous study and cutting-edge research in matters of science, technology and digital scholarship. Our endeavor is focused on creating a congenial and comfortable zone for our promising young learners and install in them the values of scientific excellence, ethical perspective, orientations in arts and humanities as well as spectacular expertise in business administration. With this aim in mind, we need to systematize the academic and administrative activities by building capacity of our current faculty and staff and recruiting promising researchers and administrative staff. It is my firm conviction that by encouraging fellow-feelings, dynamism, fluidity and progressive thoughts we will be able to enhance the dignity and prestige of Islamic University and safeguard out best national interest in the post-pandemic world.
