Chattogram University (CU) authorities have decided to confer a D.Litt (Doctor of Letters) degree to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Confirming the matter, CU Registrar (Acting) Professor SM Monirul Hasan said the decision was taken at the 536th emergency syndicate meeting of CU. 

He said the university syndicate has decided to confer a D.Litt degree to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina after receiving the ‘WITSA Eminent Persons Award-2021’ award, in recognition of the world’s top five influential leaders in tackling the global climate change crisis and highlighting groundbreaking steps for Bangladesh at the Climate Conference.

Monirul Hasan said a letter will be sent to the President’s Office with a proposal in this regard in a few days. If approved, the University will implement it later.
