LCWU students protest outside Governor's House

LCWU students protest against university VC
Lahore, July 01, 2008: About 12 students of Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) protested outside the Governor's House on Monday against LCWU Vice Chancellor Dr Bushra Mateen who has told them to display their thesis work again on July 12.

The protesting students raised slogans against the VC. 12 out of 16 graphic design students have refused to display their thesis. They said that an exhibition of their thesis work was held at Alhamra from June 7 to June 9. A jury had adjudged their work. They said that the university had appointed the jury but after two weeks, VC Dr Mateen refused to accept the results. They said, "It is ironic that the VC has asked us to display our theses again before the third examiner." They added, "There is no logic in the re-evaluation of the theses as the earlier jury had also been appointed by the university."

The protesting students said that they would continue their protest and would not display their theses. They said that the VC had refused to listen to them and their parents. "We want that the VC should accept the results prepared by the earlier jury", they added.

The protestors alleged that students were being told to present their work for re-evaluation as the VC wanted to protect some students who did not qualify earlier and had subsequently failed.

Two books launched at Punjab University
Lahore: The launch of two books 'Quality Assurance in Higher Education: A Global Perspective' by Dr Abdul Raouf (Sitara-i-Imtiaz) and Dr Niaz Ahmad and 'Safety Management and Engineering: An Integrated Approach' by Dr Abdul Rauf was held at the Punjab University (PU) on Monday.

According to a press release issued by the PU on Monday, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) Quality Assurance Adviser Dr Riaz Qureshi, PU Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr Mujahid Kamran, Dr Abdul Raouf, Dr Niaz Ahmad, Dr Javed Ahmad, Dr Mehar Saeed, faculty members and a large number of students were present on the occasion in the Institute of Quality and Technology Management (IQTM).

Vice-Chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran said that the PU teachers were publishing research papers and books regularly and these two books were on important subjects and would help teachers, professionals, practitioners and students immensely. He congratulated Dr Raouf and Dr Niaz on the publication of their books.

Kamran said that Dr Raouf was a man of great wisdom and the credit for utilising his expertise went to Dr Niaz. He said that unfortunately authors and publishers in Pakistan did not take interest in publishing books on subjects like engineering and technology. He reiterated his demand to the government for publishing good books and making them available in the market at subsidised rates. He also thanked the HEC and Dr Riaz Qureshi for publishing the book and added that the establishment of the IQTM had been possible because of the funds provided by the HEC.

The HEC Quality Assurance Adviser Dr Riaz Qureshi said that the practice of writing technical books was rare in Pakistan as compared to India where such books were available at low prices. He said the Pakistan Book Foundation was trying its best to publish technical books and was also getting a strong response from the HEC. He said that under the circumstances it was encouraging that the PU and IQTM had simultaneously launched two books on technology. He also paid tribute to the writers, Dr Raouf and Dr Niaz on the occasion adding that the quality of printing was remarkable.

Dr Abdul Raouf said that quality assurance like education did not have geographical boundaries. He thanked the HEC and PU for publishing his books. Daily Times
