US Ambassador to Bangladesh Peter Haas inaugurated the new location of American Corner in Rajshahi on Monday.

This initiative is a joint effort between the US Embassy and the Varendra University that aims to foster knowledge exchange, promote people to people ties, and strengthen the ties between the US and Bangladesh, said a press release of the US mission.

The US exchange alumni, government officials, educators, students, and members of the local community gathered to witness the unveiling of this vibrant center 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 programs, 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 will not only enhance participants' skills but also foster a deeper appreciation for the diversity of thought and ideas, said the press release.

The inauguration ceremony was a testament to the strong collaboration between the American Embassy and its local partners, reflecting their shared commitment promoting educational excellence and intercultural dialogue.

As the American Corner in Rajshahi embarks on its journey, it is poised to become a vital resource for individuals seeking to broaden their horizons and make meaningful contributions to the society, the release added.
