President Abdul Hamid has urged teachers not to compromise their ideals, and devote themselves more to acquiring and disseminating knowledge among students.

"When teachers move away from their great ideals, it creates a negative impact on students. The nation, therefore, expects the teachers to devote themselves to acquiring and disseminating knowledge, remaining firmly stuck to their great ideals," he said.

The president said this while delivering a speech at the 6th convocation of Khulna University (KU) at its campus on Sunday.

Mentioning that ideal teachers and researchers are valuable resources of the nation, President Hamid said the knowledge, skills and wisdom of teachers and researchers are the determining forces of building a nation.

Terming universities the centres of hope and aspiration of the country and the nation, he said the universities should utilize knowledge for the welfare of mankind.  

Saying higher education and research are interrelated, the head of state stressed the need for conducting international standard research to be put to use for the welfare of people.
