Professor Dr. Aminul Islam
Vice Chancellor 
Daffodil International University

I am immensely pleased to see that Daffodil International University is holding its First Convocation on May 24, 2006.

Convocation is a solemn, sacred, and purposeful function and should have the pride of place over similar ceremonial institutions. The Convocation does not belong to any particular individual or group nor is it meant for the graduates, the Chancellor and the Vice Chancellor, the Deans and the teachers alone but the nation at large, conceived and permeated as it is, with a high sense of national purpose and prestige. And, for a University it is its very soul, without it a University looses its moorings. Its tradition should, therefore, be held in high esteem in all quarters, high and low, and preserved with utmost care and concern.

With the approval of the Ministry of Education under the Private University Act of 1992 and its amendment in 1998 the Daffodil International University came into being on 24th January 2002. The Prime initiative of the country’s leading conglomerate Daffodil Group is Daffodil International University. This is a social commitment of Daffodil Group to the nation for their contribution to higher education. Daffodil International University is the accumulation of core educationists of the country to build future Bangladesh. My grateful thanks to Daffodil Group, especially to Mr. Md. Sabur Khan, President of the Group and Chairman, Board of Governors, DIU.

The University has received, since beginning, the necessary help, advice and cooperation from the Government, The UGC, and Board of Governors, DIU, the Faculty, the Management, Parents, Guardians and beloved Students. I sincerely appreciate their contributions, acknowledge with gratitude and thank them from the core of my heart.

Finally, I congratulate the graduating students of DIU on this great day and wish them all success in future life

May Allah help us in our mission
