Meherunnesa Chowdhury Sumy
Associate Professor and Head
Department of Agricultural Economics and Social Science



For more than two decades, CVASU has been educating and producing quality graduates who become the asset of the country and lead society. In this connection, the Department of Agricultural Economics and Social Sciences has been contributing to developing the employability skills of the students from a socio-economic perspective. Both teaching and research at the department focus on Rural Sociology, Social Anthropology, Agricultural Economics, Agribusiness, Marketing, Extension, Statistics, and Communicative English. We provide the students with the environment for education and research to be a pioneer – academically, socially, personally, and professionally.

 

We envision contributing to nation-building through research, higher education, and extension in the livestock and agriculture sector. To fulfill our dream, our goal is (1) to produce socially responsible and competent graduates by providing quality tertiary education, (2) to provide state-of-the-art extension services to the farmers and agripreneurs by conducting need-based research and bringing innovation in the livestock and agriculture sector, and (3) to accelerate rural development through agro-industry development.

 

I wish a happy, healthy, and fruitful journey towards excellence for all the stakeholders of this department.

 

Thank you!
