Dear BRACU Students:

I would like to begin by wishing you good luck on your summer term examinations. As you know, several issues have come to light over the past few days, and I wanted to take a moment to address you all.

First, I'd like to reiterate that BRAC University is fully committed to preparing you for the future and helping you develop into strong leaders and agents of change across Bangladesh and globally. You have expressed opinions on various issues (e.g. grading practices, need for senior teachers, quality of teaching, campus safety, need to channel student voice, etc.). I will address them expeditiously and keep you informed.

Second, the way you shared your opinions over the past few days was generally peaceful. I commend you for having shown restraint and respect for others, as well as for private and public property. As you know, I asked an independent committee (that includes a student representative and a member of the Alumni Association) to investigate two issues. Additional issues brought to our attention are also being investigated by a separate committee. We now ask for your patience, as we allow the process to work –expeditiously but with thoroughness.

Third, even after the specific situation at hand is resolved, I would like to continue to hear directly from you about what is working well at BRAC University and what you feel are our major areas for improvement. Providing you all with a positive learning environment is our highest priority, and I would like to keep productive channels of communication open among students, faculty, and the administration. In the spirit of open dialogue, I encourage you to share your views with your professors or Department Chairs, as appropriate. Here are a few additional ways for you to provide feedback:

  • BRACUvoice[at]gmail[dot]com: We have set up this new account to collect and review all concerns/suggestions submitted by students.
  • Staff Engagement: I will appoint a dedicated staff member (to be announced) to meet with you to exchange views. I would also like to meet with small groupsat appointed times to discuss various ideas and/or concerns.


Finally, know that each of you contributes to making BRAC University what it is today. I am proud of what we have accomplished together over the past few years (such as Onnesha and many other significant achievements of the student body). This has been a learning opportunity that I intend to use to forge ahead with changes to further strengthen BRACU. I hope to continue along our journey to take this institution to the next level, espousing BRACU values and pride.

Vice Chancellor
