In Bangladesh, university convocations are a special event, held only when the country’s president accepts an invitation to preside. On December 21st 2011, IUBAT conducted its third convocation in twenty years as a university. The President was unwell, so Dr Hasan Mahmud, a senior government minister, conferred degrees on all IUBAT graduates including those from the College of Nursing. A former professor himself, Dr Hasan noted the contribution of IUBAT’s Centre for Policy Research, which is led by Bangladesh Health Project Director, John Richards. We were especially proud that Bimala Rai (BSN 2009) was chosen from among the eight hundred graduates to be Valedictorian for this event.
