PU holds syndicate meeting without elected teachers

LAHORE: For the first time in its history, Punjab University held its 1742nd Syndicate meeting without any attendance from the elected teachers.

The step of administration was widely criticised by the teaching community as the elected representative body of teachers named PUASA (Punjab University Academic Staff Association)’s  office-bearer has shown grave concern. The representatives of PUASA teachers had repeatedly presented their issues to the management without response.

PUASA in a press statement also termed the behaviour of Vice Chancellor Punjab University as unethical. They said that VC’s behaviour towards female teachers is unacceptable and teachers will protest against this action.

The syndicate meeting was held at the committee room of the Vice Chancellor’s office. PU Vice Chancellor Prof Niaz Ahmed presided over the meeting online while Lahore High Court’s Justice Ameer Bhatti, Justice (r) Nasira Javed Iqbal, Pro Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Saleem Mazhar and other members participated in the meeting.

The meeting took up various degree cases of lawyers and journalists and decided to take the assistance of Disciplinary Committee members in the upcoming meeting for the final decision on all cases. The Syndicate approved recommendations of the Selection Board and approved the appointment of 5 professors, 13 associate professors, 4 assistant professors and 4 lecturers. The Syndicate also approved the appointment of 1 deputy controller, 18 admin officers and 2 research officers. The Syndicate also accorded approval to the minutes of its last meeting.
