Message from the Treasurer

For over 91 years, University of Dhaka has been advancing knowledge and transforming lives through high-impact, innovative teaching, research, and outreach initiatives. Our efforts are rooted in a set of core principles: excellence, honor and self-governance, innovation and collaboration in the pursuit of knowledge, leadership for the public good, and a vibrant breadth of academic offerings within and across our faculties. These principles shape how we choose our academic strategies, how we teach our students and prepare them for the future, and how we bring the knowledge, energy, and commitment developed in the University to the benefit of society through service. The Campaign for the University of Dhaka will power our vision of a great 21st century university. We will become a catalyst of positive change, fueled by hope, percolating with ideas, pulsating with the vitality of many cultures. We will be tough and determined, open-minded and optimistic, committed to our students and our community, to excellence and innovation, and to integrity and engagement.

We are ever mindful of the government’s budget challenges and understand that the state cannot spend more money than it has available. As we begin this journey, we must acknowledge the difficult economic circumstances of the present, even as we aspire to embrace the extraordinary opportunities of the future. I realize that achieving and maintaining this balance will be a challenge. But we cannot and must not neglect our responsibilities for today, or compromise our dreams for tomorrow — our dreams for our students, who deserve nothing less than access to a world-class education, and our dreams for a thriving Bangladesh populace, whose well-being is so intricately woven with our own.
