President Abdul Hamid has asked universities to take necessary measures to ensure congenial atmosphere on their campuses.

He also underscored the need for formulation of specific work plans for conducting research in all public and private universities.

During the meeting, the SUST VC informed the president that there is no session jam at the university and the drop culture has been reduced to a tolerable level.

Farid Uddin invited the president, also the chancellor of the university, to preside over the 3rd convocation of the university.

During the meeting, Hamid underscored for increasing extra-curriculum activities alongside the academic ones.
