US Ambassador Peter Haas has inaugurated a new American Corner in Rajshahi city, reports UNB.

This initiative is a joint effort between the Embassy of the United States of America and Varendra University, that aims to foster knowledge exchange, promote people to people ties, and strengthen the ties between the United States and Bangladesh.

US exchange alumni, government officials, educators, students, and members of the local community gathered to witness the unveiling of this vibrant centre for learning and exploration.

The American Corner is designed to be a hub of intellectual engagement, providing access to a wide range of resources, including books, digital materials, multimedia content, and online databases.

It serves as a space where students, researchers, and enthusiasts can gather to expand their horizons, engage in discussions, and collaborate on projects that contribute to educational and social development.

The American Corner also hosts a variety of programmes, workshops, and events focused on areas such as English language learning, entrepreneurship, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), and American literature and history. These activities not only enhance participants' skills but also foster a deeper appreciation for the diversity of thought and ideas.
