Academic activities suffer as 120 colleges await principals

The Punjab Higher Education Department has failed to appoint permanent principals of 120 colleges in the province, writes Adnan Lodhi for The Express Tribune. The posts have reportedly been lying vacant for the past six months and teachers have been awaiting the process to fill them.

A teacher said several administrative as well as academic activities were affected because of the absence of the principal of a college.

A number of colleges operating without a principal are in Lahore division. Most of the posts fell vacant after the principals retired or were promoted to higher posts in the department. However, the procedure of the appointment of the principals has not moved ahead in several months.
