Talking exclusively to The Educationist Dr Nizam said, “I had given the proposal to CM to appoint three PVCs trough proper selection boards and on every step we will consult all stakeholders. I know VCs didn’t like this idea. A PVC should be a good manager in all management issues,” he said.

Dr Nizam said, “Our colleges and universities can improve quality of higher education with better facilities in labs, research based education, commitment of teachers with their jobs and good student-teacher ratio. At MPhil level institutes are catering to 20-25 students, an MPhil class should have only 10-15 students and BS (4 Years) 30-40 students. At universities level they are doing little bit good work in research.”

Meanwhile, Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association Punjab President Prof Dr Hasan Mobeen Alam and PU Secretary Academic Staff Association Dr Mahboob Hussain have said the proposal to appoint 3 pro-vice chancellors, without taking input from the university teachers wouldn’t be accepted.
