An educated community is essential for preserving archaeological sites, which is really rare in Bangladesh. A community that values and protects its archaeological infrastructure will contribute to the successful development of a project with funds, volunteers and political support. Keeping it in mind, Daffodil International University as a part of its Social Responsibility donated a Microbus to Oitihya-Onneswan (Archeological Research Center) - a research based organization on Archeological development in Bangladesh to assist and support in their research work.
Prof. Dr. M. Lutfar Rahman, Vice Chancellor Daffodil International University handed over the key of the microbus to Professor Dr. Sufi Mostafizur Rahman, Executive Director of Oitihya- Onneswan on November 09, 2014 at DIU premises. Mr. Md. Sabur Khan, Chairman, Board of Trustees, Professor Dr. M. Golam Rahman, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Professor Dr. Engr. A K M Fazlul Hoque, Registrar of Daffodil International University were present during handing over the Microbus.
