In his key note address, the chief minister said that the federal and provincial higher education commissions would jointly work and pool in their resources for the promotion of higher education in Punjab. He said that the Punjab government would also provide financial support to GCU for development of its Kala Shah Campus, and he would personally look into the matter that why PC-I of the project was not yet approved.

He said that the Punjab Educational Endowment Fund Trust would swell to Rs 20 billion this year and would be awarding scholarships to the two hundred thousand bright students of the country. “It’s the biggest endowment fund in the sub-continents,” he said.

In his address, Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah called upon the graduates to retain the core values of tolerance, justice, ingenuity, prudence and diligence that they acquired during their studies at GCU and resist the onslaught of time which compels them to compromise their values and succumb to various social pressures. “You must bridge the gap between your ideals and the cruel realities of life. Your success lies in your endurance and perseverance,” he said. He told the chief minister that the process of recruitment of staff against vacant positions in all the academic departments was expedited during the last one year. As a result, a total of 109 new appointments have been made which includes 11 Professors, 24 Associate Professors, 34 Assistant Professors and 40 Lecturers. For the first time in its history, GCU now has all the four offices of Deans of Faculties occupied by competent professors, he said. The Vice Chancellor said the university deans had been delegated specific powers with well-defined targets and time frames as part of the decentralization of authority and maintenance of transparency, efficiency and accountability in all the academic and administrative affairs.

 

Later, the chief minister and VC presented Shahbaz Sharif Gold Medal for Best Urdu Declamation Speaker to Muhammad Kafeel Ashraf, Prof GD Sondhi Medal for overall excellent performance to Syed Aminah Sohail Qureshi, Mohammad Idrees Medal for Best Debater to Hassan Qadeer Butt, Daud Ilyas Medal for Outstanding Intermediate Student to Ali Zar Raza, Dr. Saida Karamat Medal for Best Woman Graduate to Amna Niaz, Waleed Iqbal Medal for Best English Parliamentary Speaker to Hamza Abbass, while Thespian Medal for excellent performance in Dramatics was conferred upon Muhammad Muneeb.

GC University Lahore introduces major reforms in intermediate programme

 

The Government College University Lahore has introduced major reforms in their intermediate programme which includes deputation of experienced and trained faculty, class monitoring system, monthly assessment tests and attendance monitoring system, besides instituting the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarships as a financial incentive for the students who perform well in the university’s Send-up tests and pre-board examinations.  

 

It was revealed by Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah while addressing ceremony organized by the GCU Directorate of Intermediate Studies and Controller of Examinations in the honour of their Intermediate positions holders at the university’s historical Bukhari Auditorium.  The teachers and parents of the position holders also attended the ceremony.

The Vice Chancellor said that intermediate program was the pride of GCU, and it’s the only government institute in the province which had consistently shown tremendous results in the Lahore Board Intermediate Examinations over the last two decades. He congratulated the Ravians for showing tremendous results in Inter exams 2015-16, saying that “students’ success and achievements were the source of glory to their institutions.” Prof Shah said GCU as a public sector institution never offers the kind of financial incentives offered by the private sector colleges. However, we provide comprehensive education which they are unable to provide. He says GCU also caters to their overall grooming especially to their personality development through co-curricular activities and sports so as to transform them into well-rounded individuals. Prof Shah called upon his students to also spend time in library with books, and stay away from the extremist ideas. He said that this year, GCU had also provided special training through their faculty deans to the teachers dedicated for the intermediate classes.

 

Addressing the ceremony, GCU Controller Examination Prof Dr Haroon Qadir said that besides seven positions, a record number of 582 students of GCU secured A+ grade, 247 scored A grade while pass percentage was 94.71 percent. He said that it was due to the students’ unflinching commitment to their studies as well as the invaluable pedagogical input of the highly-qualified GCU faculty that Ravians have been consistently securing positions in the Intermediate results for the last three decades.
