Displaying goodwill and appreciation to NSBM Green University and its many efforts to drive the nation towards a knowledge-based economy, Hon. Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, Mahinda Rajapaksa, paid a courtesy visit to the university premises in Homagama on 27th January 2020.
The Prime Minister was welcomed by Prof. E.A. Weerasinghe Vice-Chancellor, NSBM and the Management. The Hon. Minister of Higher Education, Technology and Innovation, Dr. Bandula Gunawardane also graced the occasion.
This visit is significant as it’s the first visit to NSBM, a project which commenced under his presidency in 2011. The Hon. Prime Minister appreciated the efforts of NSBM Green University in continuously elevating the standards of higher education in order to align with the country’s need of the hour – intellectual empowerment, whilst being a self-financed government-owned institute. The Vice-Chancellor also briefed the Prime Minister on the university’s future plans and expansions, as it begins constructions in another 16 acres of land, adjoining the current premises, which shall encompass a School of Nursing, in addition to Faculties of Law and Humanities.
