Such knowledge is a right as well as an obligation of every human being that should be provided by a system of universal education. Besides, a nation’s identity should be reflected in its education systems. Based on this philosophy, RUD’s mission is to disseminate knowledge in an ethical human approach reflecting the identity of Bangladesh with its heritage, culture, values and principles.
