Dhaka University was born out of a struggle by the people of eastern Bengal for asserting their regional identity. It reached its apotheosis through its vanguard role in the struggle for Bangladesh...
The University of Dhaka opened its doors on July 1, 1921, with Mr P. J. Hartog as its first Vice-Chancellor.
The year 2021 is significant for both Bangladesh and the University of Dhaka as both the entities will turn 50 and 100 respectively.
As it celebrates its first century, Dhaka University can be justifiably proud of its many glorious achievements.
