Campus Report :

The authority of the Daffodil International University (DIU) refuted the recently announced 'Private University Rankings 2017' published by Bangla Tribune and Dhaka Tribune. Though DIU praised it as an appreciable and beneficial initiative, but said, it should have been with current and latest updated data. They claimed, if appropriate methodology and latest data were used, DIU would go ahead of the ranking and would take place at the top of the list.
DIU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Yousuf M Islam expressed this concern at a "Meet the Press on Private University Rankings 2017" held on Thursday at 71 Milonayoton of DIU in the capital.  The Meet the Press was also addressed by Prof Dr SM Mahabub Ul haque Majumder, Pro Vice Chancellor, Hamidul Haque Khan, Treasurer, Prof Dr Engineer AKM Fazlul Hoque , Registrar and Syed Mizanur Rahman, Director of Student Affairs.
It is mentionable that Bangla Tribune and Dhaka Tribune jointly published a ranking report on private universities of Bangladesh conducted by Org-Quest Research Ltd. According to the ranking, DIU ranked 10th position (total score 61.88) on perceptual ranking and 20th position (51.06) on factual ranking. Combining both the ranking, the University has been placed on the 10th position scoring 56.47. But DIU authority said, this ranking is not realistic. As per DIU, the factual score was considered based on some variable like- total number of students, number of books in library, research expense, numbers of PhD degree holders, size the campus, teacher-student ratio, percentage of full time faculty member and number of research paper.
Dr Yousuf M Islam said, the factual data has taken from University Grant Commission report published in the year of 2014. Actually that was the reports of year 2013 submitted by the universities. The perceptual data was taken in the year 2017. If the recent (2017) factual data would be taken, the point of DIU obviously would increase and would come to the top position of the list and this would be the realistic. So, this situation raises various questions in our mind. DIU could score higher, but deprived.
However, DIU authority doesn't consider who has become first or second in the ranking, but the truth is that real information is not reflected in the research work. It thinks that through this report students and guardians may be misguided or confused and total education system would become under question.
