PU teachers oppose retired general as VC
LAHORE, July 7(Daily Times): President of the Federation of All Pakistan Universities'
Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) Mumtaz Salik demanded the government to
replace the Punjab University's (PU) vice chancellor (VC), who was a retired
army general, said a press release on Thursday.
He said the Higher Education
Commission (HEC) had also recommended that the VCs of universities should be PhD
degree holders, but the government was not complying with the criterion. He said
some senior professor of the university should be appointed as the VC. He said
retired army officers and bureaucrats were controlling most of the universities
in Pakistan. The quality of education was being badly affected by the
involvement of army officers and bureaucrats, he added.
"I totally agree with this , VCs of the universities must be PhD and senior faculty members not the Generals."
