HEC Chairman Dr Tariq Banuri


The Vice-Chancellors’ Committee has urged the government to revisit its decision regarding budgetary cut, especially the recurring budget of the higher education sector and announce a supplementary grant for universities. A meeting of the committee was held at the Higher Education Commission (HEC) Islamabad to discuss the challenges arising out of the budgetary cuts for the higher education sector.

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has started the process of revamping four-year undergraduate curriculum in the general universities, in order to enhance quality of higher education. The overall objective of HEC revamping undergraduate curriculum is to prepare the students and develop critical and analytical thinking, evidence-based observation, a deeper sense of civic and social rights and responsibilities in them, after the completion of their degree programmes.
