Government of Malaysia and Humanitarian Affairs present: The 11th edition University Scholars Leadership Symposium 2020

Dear Saifuddin Ahmed,

Associate Professor & Chairman

Department of Peace and Conflict Studies

University of Dhaka


It gives me great joy to email you personally regarding the 11th edition of the University Scholars Leadership Symposium (USLS) 2020. As a South Asian myself, it is my sole mission for South Asian countries like Bangladesh to be exposed to such an amazing international opportunity. This event proved to be an invaluable experience for me, providing me with numerous skills. I hope the same for many Bangladeshi students that would be interested in attending and representing their great country on this global platform, connecting with people from all around the world.

For your convenience, I have attached the brochure guide and promotion guide for more information about the event and ways to promote it to your students. I have also attached testimonials from past educators who have first-handedly seen the benefit their students gained by attending the event. I look forward to seeing many of your students at this life-changing event.


Please find your official invitation below.
