Public universities should meet world standards: governor

LAHORE, Sept 15: Punjab University chancellor governor Lt Gen (r) Khalid Maqbool said on Friday that public universities should bring at par their departments with international standards and irrelevant departments should be dissolved.

Addressing vice chancellors of the province's public universities on the second day of the meeting on public universities' sub-campuses, Maqbool said the sub-campus of the Punjab University in Gujranwala was a model that other public universities could adopt. He said the sub-campus had encouraged the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and the government to extend public universities through sub-campuses. He said sub-campuses were providing education to the people in remote areas. He said these sub-campuses should be given the status of independent institutes but the link with their parent schools should also be kept. He said students studying at the sub-campus should be provided opportunity to visit their parent school. He said the government was trying to provide all necessary facilities including hostels, libraries and land and that the HEC would help universities in this regard. He also mentioned some university departments in some areas that were consuming more resources and producing less results.

HEC member planning commission Dr Mukhtar Ahmed said on the occasion that the HEC had begun numerous projects for promoting education and that the HEC would help universities in upgrading their infrastructure. He said the HEC had approved various universities' demands and that he would forward proposals of various projects in this regard to the HEC chairman for the final approval. He said presently 6,000 faculty members were required for upgrading, adding that the commission various faculty members were being sent to foreign countries for PhD studies. He said various universities' buildings were being also upgraded. He said the HEC was trying to have teacher student ratio to one teacher on 20 students. Daily Times
