Begum Rokeya University getting rid of session jam: VC

Vice-chancellor (VC) of Begum Rokeya University, Rangpur (BRUR) Professor Dr. Md. Hasibur Rashid has said the university is getting rid of session jam in the coming days.

"Although there was a four-year session jam due to various reasons even a year ago, the problem is coming to an end within a year. In the last one year, two batches of students completed their studies and entered
workplaces," he said.

 He was speaking as the chief guest at a farewell reception of the outgoing students of Department of Gender and Development Studies (GDS) for the 2014-15 academic sessions organized by the GDS Association at a local restaurant here on Friday night, a press release said this evening.

 Professor Rashid said the first step he took was to free the university from session clutter after joining as Vice-chancellor during the peak period of the Covid-19 pandemic.

 "So, I started online classes and examinations. In a short span of time, we are now much more successful in getting rid of session jam," he said.

The Vice-chancellor thanked all concerned including teachers and students for successfully running online classes and examinations during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Pointing to the outgoing students, the Vice-chancellor said that there is no end to education.

"You (outgoing students) may have completed your formal education. But, in this highly competitive age of information technology, you need to integrate yourselves with practical education," he said.

 He said it is still unknown what will be the pattern of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

"So, you have to prepare yourselves to survive the competition of the Fourth Industrial Revolution by combining thematic education and practical education," he said.

Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences Md. Shariful Islam as the special guest attended the function presided over by Head of the Department of GDS Mir Tamanna Siddika.

Teacher of the Department of GDS Twaha Hossaine moderated the program also attended by teachers, students, officials and employees of the department.

 Later, the outgoing students were greeted with crests.
