LAHORE: A comprehensive plan has been made to restructure and renovate the Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) Lahore, said Vice-Chancellor Dr Uzma Qureshi.
She was addressing to the faculty and staff members at the university campus on Wednesday.
The vice chancellor announced setting up a separate building for the Lahore Intermediate College for women in LCWU to provide better facility to the students and to get a refined nursery for graduate and postgraduate disciplines. She added that the old block of LCWU would also be renovated as it is a great asset and heritage.
She said a roadmap to strengthen LCWU, the only institution for higher education in the provincial headquarter for women, was on the cards. She said that only balanced education can counter terrorism and extremism, which is plaguing the people in Pakistan. Educationists must focus on producing moderate graduates with good moral character and flexible attitude, she said. “It is important to develop human resources than to develop infrastructure.”
Dr Uzma said the curriculum would be revised to empower graduates to work in practical fields. “There are15,000 students on campus and we are trying to improve the quality of education in our university,” she said, adding incentives would be approved for research scholars to promote the research culture among students.
The vice chancellor announced a few incentives for the staff and increased the personal loan limit from Rs10,000 to Rs20,000.
