Grounds of NSU

North South University Bangladesh is the most preferred and respected private university of Bangladesh. A brief history of North South University has been presented here in this article for the information of its valued students.

These are not just words, but an expression of the vision and mission that they have set as a leading private university in Bangladesh. They believe that committed and dedicated educators are vital to the success of an institution; therefore, NSU is committed to providing faculty who meet high standards of excellence through a long-term career development program, continuous professional development opportunities, and competitive compensations packages to ensure they remain at NSU for extended periods of time.

They believe in an environment of high expectations, mutual respect, and caring.

The beginnings of NSU can be traced to 1992 when student-led discussions about the need for a private university in Bangladesh led by Salma Afroz resulted in the formation of North South Education Foundation (NSEF) to ensure quality education. In its initial years, it was registered as an NGO and functioned under that banner until 2001. Following the passing of a Private University Act during 1996, North South University became an incorporated entity on September 9, 2000 – with Arild Vatnal as Chairperson; Abdul Momen Khan as Vice Chairman; Shafiul Alam Chowdhury as Treasurer; KM Saiful Islam Rahmani as Secretary and Asaduzzaman Azad as General Secretary.
