AIUB has always been a family. It was born into my family, as a dream realized by my late father, the Founder Chairman, Dr. Anwarul Abedin, nurtured by my late mother, Mrs. Hasna Abedin, and brought up by my siblings and I. Spearheaded by my older brothers, Dr. Hasanul A. Hasan, the Founder Member, Treasurer, and Vice President of HR & Administration, and Mr. Ishtiaque Abedin, the Founder Member, Former Chairman, and the Vice President of PR & International Affairs, myself as the Founder Member and Vice President of Student Affairs, together with our honorable Vice Chancellor, Dr. Carmen Z. Lamagna, we have all seen AIUB come a long way since its inception. It is a daunting challenge indeed, to preserve and foster all that we have achieved in the last 2.5 decades of AIUB’s journey. Constantly evolving in, not only our academic curriculum, we have successfully established one of the most versatile green open-design campus premises in Dhaka today. As the chairperson for this term, I will be focusing on furthering the efforts we have made over the years, emphasizing on student services, alumni engagement, international development, academic excellence, and co-curricular development of students and staff alike. The students being the centerpiece of all our efforts in the university will be served and nurtured with dedication and quality. My aim, as the chairman, aligned with that of the university, is to equip our graduates with competencies in knowledge, skills, and attitude to thrive in both local and global platforms. I will strive to uphold the name that we have worked so tirelessly to build, creating innovations, sustaining progress, and adding value to our institution. I hope we can all work together in moving towards a future that enables our students to make their mark across the world, not only representing AIUB but Bangladesh as a whole.
