DU Admissions 2018 : No Elected Teacher On Admission Panel

DU Admissions 2018 : The university is prepping up for admissions for the admissions to the academic session 2018-19 and shockingly there are no teachers representatives elected on the panel of the recently constituted 10-member committee,for taking admission related decisions which comprise of principals of colleges and varsity officials.

Earlier a 47-member admission committee was formed which was later renamed as “admission advisory committee”, and now it can work only within the advisory capacity.¬†It has raised concerns within the members of varsity’s highest decision making bodies – Academic Council (AC) and Executive Council (EC) and is a serious cause of concern for teachers and students alike.According to the AC and EC members, the committee, which consists of college principals and varsity officials, will “overlook” the larger interest of students while taking admission related decisions. “In the absence of any teacher representative, who is directly connected with the students and familiar with their issues, how can the committee be able to take decisions in the interest of students?” asked Hansraj Suman, an AC member and professor at Sri Aurobindo College.

A post on a Facebook group by Prof. Naveen Gaur, Department of Physics, Dyal Singh College reads “Who bothers about elected representatives. Over the years we have witnessed even AC/EC are reduced to rubber stamp and university administration takes most of the decisions outside AC/EC. From many years now even the regular meetings of these bodies are not called. The worse part in all of this is that in all the committees it is university administration that handpick the members (most of them are our own colleagues) and they happily work in these committees (and duly mention this in their CV) without raising slightest of questions.”¬†(sic)
