The issue of setting up a media centre at Rajshahi University will be included in its master plan, said the authorities yesterday.
The decision came following a meeting between around 50 journalists from different media houses and the RU administration at its Senate building.
A governing body will be formed later after holding another meeting with the journalists, said Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof Choudhury Zakaria.
Speaking as the chief guest, RU VC Prof Abdus Sobhan said, “With the help of the media centre we will be able to preserve information about the development of the university and spread those through publication.”
Under the 50 years of master plan, a multi-storey academic building and administration building, three dormitories and two super shops will also be constructed, said Prof Zakaria.
