Move to own campus to avoid action: Nahid
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Saturday said the government will take action against those private universities which could not yet set up own campuses.
“We will stop the admission of new students to those universities which could not yet set up their own campuses,” he said while addressing the 4th convocation of United International University (UIU) in Dhaka, reports UNB.
Prof Jamilur Reza Choudhury, University Grants Commission (UGC) chairman Prof Abdul Mannan, UIU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr M Rezwan Khan and its Board of Trustee chairman Hasan Mahmood Raja were, among others, present on the occasion.
Nahid said the government will not provide its assistance to those private universities which only want to make profit without fulfilling the government conditions.
Meanwhile, many private universities have been shut for not fulfilling the conditions to run the universities under the rules of the Private University Act-2010, the minister added.
