Think-tank offer to QAU | Pindi colleges

Think-tank offer an honour for QAU faculty
Islamabad, April 26, 2008: Federal Education Minister Ahsan Iqbal has honoured the faculty of Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU) to work as a think tank for his ministry to resolve educational problems in the country.

During an interaction with the teachers at QAU campus, he said the teachers could play an important role to steer the country on the way to progress by imparting quality education and inculcating strong values among youths.

The QAU faculty members freely discussed their problems with the minister and expressed their reservations about promotions and issues of university's residential colony.

The minister promised his full support for upgradation of QAU and the betterment of the faculty members. QAU Vice Chancellor Muhammad Qasim Jan drew Iqbal's attention towards the problems such as power breakdowns and security concerns hampering research work at the university campus.

Music gala
After restoration of student unions, extra-curricular activities at the QAU campus have gained momentum. Students of Biochemistry Department organised a musical gala on the football ground of the campus. Students enjoyed favourite songs sung by their fellows. Stalls offering different items including bouquets, greeting cards and henna were also set up. Love jail was a popular programme of the gala. Students enjoyed a lot when jailers arrested couples and asked one partner from each couple to pay money for the release.

Industrial Week at NUML
National University of Modern Languages (NUML) campus witnessed an industrial week in which MBA third semester students were offered an opportunity to hold stalls and sell their items using their marketing techniques. Seventy groups, each comprising four students, had set up stalls and practised theoretical knowledge.

"The university administration has provided the students this opportunity to sharpen their abilities," said an official of the university. Daily Times

Many faculties in Pindi colleges closed
Rawalpindi: Many faculties in several boys and girls colleges of the district Rawalpindi have been closed due to non-recruitment and abolition of approved posts of senior professors.

The faculty in subjects including history, journalism, physical education, social work, and geography, Persian, English and Urdu have been closed and more faculties are likely to be closed due to shortage and retirement of teachers.

Nine degree colleges were established due to the efforts of former federal minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, but the classes of physics, biology and chemistry still not started due to unavailability of science laboratories and teachers.

Sources said that in several colleges there are no sports activities due to lack of physical education teachers. The subject of social work is also not taught in Government Asghar Mall College after the retirement of the professor of that subject. The subject of Persian is also not being taught in that college.

The subjects of history, journalism, and physical education are not being taught in Government College Satellite Town, Rawalpindi, and the situation is the same in other colleges of Rawalpindi Division, sources added.

Honour for Pakistani student
Rawalpindi: Claes Nobel, senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes and founder of The National Society of High School Scholars, has awarded a $5,000 Claes Nobel Academic Scholarship to Aga Khan University Medical College student Zohaib Ashraf. Ashraf was selected for the award from among 11,000 applicants for excellence in academics, leadership, and community service and is invited to the NSHSS recognition ceremony in Washington, D.C, on May 30 in the US Senate Dirksen Building. Mr Nobel stated, "I am deeply honored to recognize Zohaib as one of our most outstanding students." The Nobel family established the Nobel Prizes in 1901 in order to note outstanding contribution in the fields of peace, literature, medicine, chemistry, and physics. The News
