Brac University (BracU) already aimed to make its significant position on the global map. “Because there is no great university in the world which is not international. And BracU is no unique”, said the Vice Chancellor and President of Brac University (BracU) Professor Vincent Chang.
Prof. Chang is working with the vision to increase international collaboration of BracU. Marking this, recently Prof. Chang arranged couple of meetings with international academia personalities at BracU campus.
Prof. Michelle A. Williams, Dean of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, met Prof. Chang on 31 July 2019. Prof. Williams agreed to commence a significant collaboration with BracU. This collaboration includes research and exchange. “It’s going to complement the strengths of Harvard and BracU. And it will make difference in a big way,” said Prof. Chang.
Dr. Richard Cash, Senior Lecturer on Global Health at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health who has been working with BRAC for near 50 years was present in the meeting as well.
Apart from this, Prof Chang had meeting with Dr. Ayman El-Mohandes, Dean of City University of New York (CUNY) on July 1 and Journalist Laura Hoeflinger from Der Spiegel magazine of Germany and July 2.
In both meetings, Prof Chang discussed the importance of internationalization of BracU, vision and mission and goals for the next four years.
