Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) speaks out against HEC

LAHORE, Aug 25: The Punjab University Academic Staff Association executive body has again passed a resolution condemning the Higher Education Commission for "unnecessarily interfering in public universities, imposing policies on them without consulting faculty members and threatening to stop grants".

The meeting, chaired by Dr Mumtaz Salik at the Punjab University on Friday, called for withdrawal of the circular issued by the governor for construction of joint offices for teachers and abolition of quota for the children of university teachers and employees.

The resolution supported the Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Associations' demand for teachers' promotions, revival of criteria for recruitment of assistant professors, cancellation of Balochistan University ordinance, appointment of senior university teachers as vice-chancellors, provision of PhD facilities to university teachers on a priority and recognition of quality research journals.

The PUASA executive body agreed to support and participate in the FAPUASA protest campaign by observing black day on Sept 5 and strikes on Sept 19 and 26. The PUASA has called its general body meeting on Aug 29 to consult all faculty members on this issue. Dawn
