The first day session focused on the changes universities faced over the years, their implications and challenges posed

The American International University – Bangladesh (AIUB) was granted acceptance into the Magna Charta Universitatum (MCU) 2020 as a signatory back in August 2020.

But the official launching ceremony of MCU 2020 was held virtually on the 32nd MCU Anniversary, in a 2-day event from June 16-17, where Vice Chancellor of AIUB Prof Carmen Z Lamagna was present, along with other AIUB officials, said a press release.

The first day session focused on the changes universities faced over the years, their implications and challenges posed today, followed by a discussion on the need for MCU 2020, its structure and impact for higher education institutions (HEIs) in the second day session.

This initiative aims to enable the HEIs to strengthen their respective roles in the world for the next generation.

The occasion was commemorated with over 200 members of HEIs and its relevant associations, through an incredible selection of videos for the official signing of the MCU 2020 by signatories, along with ones that showcased signatory institutions putting the values into practice.

AIUB was one of the 16 institutions whose videos were included in the event, demonstrating the civic responsibility of HEIs as global knowledge networks embedded in local cultures, contributing to their future enrichments and further development, undertaking leadership roles in communities through research integrated teaching and learning.

The MCU was originally signed in 1988 by the University of Bologna to mark its 900th Anniversary to celebrate university traditions and to encourage collaboration between institutions.

It has not only grown in importance, but now demands itself to be able to be extended and take into account the significant changes in the global landscape of higher education, the release also said.
