pakistan universities

Several public universities in Punjab are being run by temporary vice chancellors, who in turn have put in place a make-do system of ad-hoc appointees.

A number of public universities in Punjab have been marred by administrative crisis due to the absence of permanent vice chancellors to run the affairs of some of the most important higher education institutes in the province. Some of the institutes have been running without a permanent head for almost three years now.

Though not many university applicants in Pakistan realize it, universities and their degree programs are routinely evaluated on the basis of several qualitative and quantitative measures the institutes have put in place for able dispensation of their noble services. Accreditations of programs from HEC-approved independent evaluators are important not only to the survival of universities but are also extremely crucial for the studies and careers of many gullible students who continue falling into the hands of charlatans posing as educators.
