Noore Alam, president of the association, said, "Currently, there are 108 professors in the university. There are 26 grade-1 professors. Many of them have held many important government positions. They have enough competence and qualifications to serve as the vice-chancellor of the university.”
According to the university sources, the government appointed Mizanur Rahman, the then treasurer and a professor of marketing department of Dhaka University (DU), as the fourth vice-chancellor of the university on 19 March 2013. In 2016, he was re-appointed as the vice chancellor for a second term.
The tenure of his second term ended last Friday. Under the University Act, Kamaluddin Ahmed, treasurer of the university, has been appointed as the acting vice-chancellor until the next vice-chancellor is appointed.
