Suicide is not a freshly emerging problem in modern society; rather, it is a dangerously developing social truth that is becoming more and more important to study as time goes on due to people's increased interest in more basic questions. The current study offers a normative and evaluative explanation of establishing the theory of moral goodness of suicidal intervention on sociological, philosophical, categorical imperatives, and humanist grounds because the suicide rate among university students has been sharply rising in recent years. Following the claims of sociologists such as Durkheim and philosophers like Kant in regard to human integration, control, ethics, and integrity, a break in a person's suicide choice would be a reason to reconsider. This study intends to critically analyze the patterns and causes of suicide among Bangladeshi tertiary students by using secondary data analysis and the case study approach. We will argue that suicide elevates the responsibilities and accountability of academic institutions, families, governments, and the general public, necessitating special consideration.
