Eastern university scheduled to reopen on March 19

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 February 2007, 21:09 GMT]
The decision to reopen the Eastern University of Sri Lanka (EUSL) on March 19 was taken at a meeting held on Monday at 10:30 a.m. in Kallady, Batticaloa Vipulantha College of Aesthetic Studies of the university campus, Acting Vice chancellor S.Pathmanathan said.

The meeting was attended by high ranking officials including "Myown" Mustafa, Deputy Minister of Higher Education, S.M.Amir Ali Minister for Disaster Management, Gamini Samaranayake, Head of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and secretary of Ministry of Higher Education.

A large number of people including academic and non academic staff of the Eastern University, undergraduates, parents and religious leaders also were present at the meeting

The activities of the Eastern University came to a standstill after the Vice Chancellor (VC) of the university, Prof. Sivasubramaniam Ravindranath, was abducted in Colombo on 15 December 2006. After his resignation was accepted by the UGC, the acting VC, Dr. N. Pathmanathan, took steps to reopen the university. However, the arrests and detention of some undergraduates and staff of the university following a claymore explosion along the main road near the university on 31 January hampered the initiative.

Only administrative functions are currently being conducted at EUSL and effective March 19 all academic activities will resume, university sources said.
