LAHORE: Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) has been assigning important posts on an ad-hoc basis and some posts of deans have been lying vacant for several years, according to a private media outlet.
Two of four faculties of the university are functioning without regular deans. Economics head Dr Mariam Wasif is looking after the matters of the faculty of management and administrative sciences on an ad hoc basis. Same is the case with the faculty of natural sciences which is being looked after by chemistry head Dr Bushra Khan.
The posts of deans of these faculties have been lying vacant for almost eight years. According to sources, the vice-chancellor had appointed in-charge of these faculties instead. The slot of chief security officer has also been lying vacant.
Two important posts — registrar and controller of examinations — have also been filled on an ad hoc basis.
The vice-chancellor had reconstituted the harassment committee which is a prerogative of the syndicate only as per policy guidelines of HEC.
