Dhaka University’s Professor, Dr. Sadeka Halim has been appointed as the first female vice chancellor of Jagannath University (JnU).

The Ministry of Education on Thursday (30 November) announced in a gazette notification about her new appointment. At the time of the appointment, Sadeka Halim is serving as the chairperson of the Department of Sociology at Dhaka University.

President Mohammed Shahabuddin made the appointment for the next four years.

The vice chancellorship at Jagannath University became vacant after former vice chancellor Imdadul Hoque passed away from cancer.

In addition to serving on the national education policy formulation committee in 2010, Professor Sadeka Halim was the first female information commissioner in the nation. In 1988, she began working as a teacher at Dhaka University.
