Jatiya Kabi Kazi Nazrul Islam University was established by the Government of Bangladesh on 09 May 2006, though the initiative for its establishment was taken some years before, firstly by a non-official group of socio-cultural local elites, namely Greater Mymensingh Cultural Forum. The university was originally conceived to be built as the first cultural university in Bangladesh, but the JKKNIU Act enacted in 2006 made it a general university with a special focus on liberal-cum-performing arts education and research.
The university has a duly qualified and productive band of youthful faculty members and officers/staffs who are deeply committed to the university's mission to produce world class graduates in academic disciplines of arts, social sciences, science & engineering, and business administration - whose services and dedications are urgently needed for the reconstruction of this country.
We have very enthusiastic and energetic team of qualified teachers. Currently as a new university we have 160+ full time teachers comprising Full Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors and Lecturers.
