HEC denies involvement in VCs' appointment

LAHORE, Aug 22: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has said that it has no role in appointing vice chancellors (VCs) in government universities, but added that the VCs should be excellent scholars and administrators.

The HEC, in a press statement issued on Tuesday, said it had been improving the quality of higher education to meet international standards of teaching, learning, research and academic services.

Some teacher organisations claimed that the HEC was appointing army personnel and bureaucrats as vice chancellors in government universities.

The HEC press statement said that VCs were appointed by chancellors through a transparent search committee. "The search committee consists of five eminent scholars and citizens of Pakistan who recommend three names to the chancellor, after the position has been advertised," the statement added. "The chancellor then appoints one of the three people as VC as recommended by the search committee," the statement said. It said that statements by some people that the HEC was involved in the VCs' appointments were incorrect. The HEC had not represented any search committee for VCs' appointment, the statement added.
