As part of its commitment to help drive the 4th Industrial Revolution and fulfill the government’s signature pledge for sustainable inclusive development, Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) has officially launched the IUB ARROWS program, the first-ever inclusive undergraduate program at the university level in Bangladesh, says a press release.
Under the ARROWS program, IUB will be handpicking a cohort of 50 students every year from now on and offering them fully-sponsored personalized training, mentorship, internship, job placement and study resources.
The program was launched at an event titled ‘Inclusive Development and IUB’ at the university auditorium in the capital’s Bashundhara residential area on Saturday.
Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad, chairman of Palli Karma-Sahayak Foundation (PKSF), attended the program as the chief guest.
Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad said, “Financial inclusion alone is not sufficient because inclusivity must be across the board. A human being lives in a multidimensional space which means they have many needs like food, housing, transportation and so on. The fact that the IUB ARROWS program is looking to address those multidimensional needs might prove to be crucial for success.”
