Update : 16 Nov 2014, 07:24 PM

Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid yesterday urged the authorities of the country’s private universities to ensure quality education and run their institutions by following relevant laws.

He also urged them to charge tuition fees at a certain level so that poor but meritorious students could get access to higher education alongside the students from well-off families.

Nahid was addressing the 3rd convocation of the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB)  at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital.

The minister praised the university’s authorities for their initiative to include subjects on Bangladesh studies and sustainable development in its curriculum at undergraduate level.

A total of 1080 graduates were conferred degrees at the convocation ceremony where Nahid awarded gold medals to two students for their extraordinary academic performances. 

The students are Saima Akter of English department and Azizur Rahman of business administration department.

Delivering the convocation speech, renowned writer and poet Syed Shamsul Haq said academic education is a first step for a life long learning process. 

Suggesting the students to be knowledge seekers, he said they must learn to question the existing system and the society where they live in.

Speaking on the occasion, ULAB Vice Chancellor Prof Imran Hossain said the university had started its journey on October 1 in 2004 to produce skilled manpower by providing with quality education in the country.

“We are trying to be a part of building a knowledge based society through providing quality education,” he said.

Dr Kazi Anis Ahmed, vice-president of the board of trustees of ULAB, also spoke at the convocation.
