PU VC search committee is competent enough: governor

LAHORE, Sept 14: The Search Committee that appoints vice chancellors (VCs) is a competent body, framed by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and no one can challenge it, Chancellor/Governor Lt Gen (r) Khalid Maqbool said on Thursday. Answering a question of the Punjab University acting VC Dr Arif Butt at the Vice Chancellors' Conference at the Governor's House, Chancellor Maqbool said the members of the search committee were well-reputed people and had contributed a lot to the field of education. Maqbool stopped Dr Butt from talking on the search committees and internal matters of the Punjab University (PU). He said the purpose of the conference was to discuss on academic development, not varsities' internal affairs.

Higher Education Commission (HEC) chairman Dr Attaur Rehman said Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz met with the chancellors of all provinces a few days ago and the meeting discussed the issue of search committees. He said the meeting decided that the HEC would give funds only to those universities that accept its decisions and follow its policies. He said the committee looked for people with leadership qualities for the job of a VC. Mumtaz Ahmed Salik, president of the Federation of All Pakistan Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) had on September 9, criticised the HEC's search committee. He had said that its members were "incompetent, not from the academic circle and do not even have a PhD". Daily Times
