The University Grants Commission issued a letter consisting a set of six-point guidelines for the public universities on June 22, suggesting how they can draw up their recovery plans after reopening to reduce the session jam and make up the learning losses of students.
On the very next day of receiving the letter, the Academic Council of the Comilla University formed a seven-member committee heading Dr Rashidul Islam Sheikh, dean of Law Faculty, as the convenor and Abdullah Al Mamun, deputy controller of examinations, as member secretary.
Though 68 days left after forming the committee, any formalprogress yet to be seen in this regard. Students are expressing anger over the delay in formulating the Disaster Recovery Guidelines.
Mahmudul Hasan Rashed, a final year student of Physics department said, the 'Disaster Recovery Plan' could be a fruitful process to reduce the severe session jam. But after so long, the committee still has not shown any progress which is really sad.
However, Rashidul Islam Sheikh, convener of the committee, said, receiving the letter, we held a meeting and prepared a draft. We will finalize it soon and submit it to the syndicate.
Registrar (additional in-charge) Professor. Md. Abu Taher said, I am affected by Covid-19. I have taken 15 days leave from the university. I can't talk about it now.
However, the university Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr Emran Kabir Chowdhury couldn’t be reached foe comment over the phone despite repeated times.
