CHATTOGRAM:  Chittagong University (CU) will confer honorary D.Litt degree on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her contributions in tackling climate crisis, poverty alleviation and development of the country.

The CU authorities took the decision at an emergency syndicate meeting on Sunday.

CU Registrar (acting) Professor SM Monirul Hasan said the syndicate has decided to confer D.Litt on Sheikh Hasina in recognition of her contributions to the country’s overall development at the national and international level.

“We’ll send a letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina informing her about the decision. If she agrees, the final decision will be taken in this regard," Professor Monirul said.

Earlier, the CU authorities conferred honorary D.Litt degree on former Indian president Pranab Mukherjee in a special convocation ceremony held on January 16 in 2018.
