It gives me great pleasure to see that a large number graduates is receiving degrees in the 6th Convocation of BRAC University. I congratulate the graduates on this auspicious occasion.

Since its inception in 2001, BRAC University has created a niche for itself in the field of higher education in the country. It has secured a place of high distinction in quality teaching and research. BRAC University produces young professionals steeped in high ethical values and imbibed in the spirit of self-less devotion and service to the nation. I am happy to note that BRAC University has a generous scholarship scheme to help and encourage meritorious and underprivileged students. This is quite in conformity with BRAC's vision of creating a world free from poverty and ignorance.

I also congratulate the proud parents and guardians who often endured hardship and difficulties, yet kept on encouraging their wards in reaching the desired goal. I am sure together we shall build a better future for our nation and indeed the world.

Today's Sixth Convocation ceremony marks another milestone in BRAC University's ongoing journey towards growth and progress. On this auspicious day, I congratulate all the graduates for successfully completing their courses and commend them for their outstanding results. This day marks a turning point, as you step out of University life and go on to tackle the many challenges and opportunities the world has to offer. Undoubtedly, your time as a student at the University will have nurtured your ability to overcome and thrive as you embark on this transition.

I congratulate the parents and guardians of the graduates, for the roles they have played in helping the students accomplish their goal. I thank our faculty members and staff for their tireless efforts, to provide these students with the highest standard of education in the country. I also thank our distinguished members of the Board of Trustees and the Academic Council for their time, energy and wise counsel.

Our vision behind setting up BRAC University was to provide broad-based learning that leads to critical thinking and the ability to accommodate a diversity of perspectives. Over the course of the last decade, the University has made remarkable progress in fulfilling that vision. BRAC University has created a niche for itself in research activities in the fields of Education, Governance, Social Development, Public Health and Life Sciences. The research carried out by the University is indeed making an important contribution to social and economic progress.

Once again, let me offer my praise to the graduates. I hope the next chapter in your lives brings you success and a continued commitment to learning. I urge you to take the knowledge you have gained from your time here at the University to contribute to making a positive change, towards the betterment of our society and improving the lives of those who have not had the privileges you have had.

Congratulations and warm wishes for the future.

BRAC University

My heartiest congratulations to the graduating class of 2011, the sixth batch of students graduating from BRAC University.

BRAC University continues to march ahead on the road to progress and development. With each passing year, we continue to develop our curriculum to bring it up-to-date with the latest development in the academic field. We also add newer subjects into the academic curriculum to provide our students a wider
array of choices. Only last year we added three Bachelors programmes in Pharmacy, Biotechnology and Microbiology. We believe that our graduates will add to the growing need of skilled manpower in these vital areas of development. That we are providing high quality of education is evident from the fact that our graduates today are well-placed in the corporate world, pursuing higher education in some of the top universities in the world, are involved in cutting-edge research activities in prestigious research laboratories. All these have been possible due to the hard work and dedication of the students, high-quality teaching by
our highly qualified faculty and a service-oriented, dedicated staff. I must also recall with gratitude the timely guidance and directives that we received from the Board of Trustees, and especially its Chairperson, Sir Fazle Hasan Abed KCMG. I am also grateful to the members of the Academic Council for their help and
advice. I also recall with gratitude the sincere cooperation that we receive from our founding organization BRAC, almost on daily basis.

On this auspicious day, my advice to the graduating students would be to proceed further with the solid foundation that we have laid here in BRAC University. The world outside is full of challenges and pitfalls; there are great opportunities as well the danger of failures. I am sure you are amply prepared to overcome all obstacles and challenges and go forward to win the laurels of success. I would urge upon all of you to not only work towards your self-improvement, but to give something back to the society that has nurtured you all along.

I congratulate the parents and guardians for the sacrifices they made in getting their wards where they are today. I pray for the success of the graduating students and wish them all the best as they set out on their new journeys.

I am honoured and delighted to be the guest speaker at the 6th Convocation of BRAC University on February 7th 2011.

BRAC University is young, but it has much to offer in showing how to inspire young women and men with the knowledge, skills and motivation to pursue productive lives in our complex and interconnected world.

The link between BRAC and the university provides a source of evidence based knowledge on how to empower poor people - particularly women - to achieve their potential. Those graduating this year, and in previous years, must feel a particular pride in that connection, and have an empathy with the need to bridge the knowledge gap between those who have been fortunate enough to benefit
from university education and the less well educated majority of the population.

I commend BRAC University - its founders, leaders, faculty and administration, for the fine work they have been doing over the years. I look forward to meeting the class of 2011, and listening to their ideas about the major challenges of our world. In particular, I would like to share some ideas about the concept of climate justice, linking climate change, development and human rights. Bangladesh is known as a country giving leadership on the challenge of climate change, and I know I will be stimulated and inspired by my visit to BRAC University.
