FCCU hold 58th convocation

LAHORE, Nov 06, 2007: The Forman Christian College University (FCCU) held its 58th annual convocation on Monday. Governor Lt Gen (r) Khalid Maqbool presided over the function. He praised the university and said its degree was recognised worldwide. He said the FCCU had produced scholars and leaders like General Pervez Musharraf. He praised the FCCU faculty for working hard for improving the status of the university. He said the faculty played a very important role in the progress of institutions. He said the tenure track system was introduced for the capacity building of universities' faculty. He said the FCCU faculty were getting very reasonable salaries under the system. He said the government was taking several steps to help professional teachers perform better.

The governor announced a Rs 500 million grant for a new block at the FCCU. Before the governor's address, FCCU rector Dr Peter H Armacost spoke on the varsity's history. He said that after the university's denationalisation the number of its students had increased from 3,600 to 4,700, which included 700 Christians. He said the faculty included 60 PhD holders. He said the varsity gave scholarships to 1,700 students. Education minister Mian Imran Maqsood also attended the convocation. Daily Times
