Session Jam Paralyzed NU | Lack of Inter-departmental Coordination
Bangladesh National University is a parent university of Bangladesh which was primarily established to affiliate all the universities and colleges. NU was established in 1992 to ease the burden of public universities and run smoothly the functions of education in the tertiary level run through the university colleges. But Session jam has paralyzed NU by hijacking valuable times of students exerting its negative effect on national life. No effective measures have so far been taken though the situation is getting worse day by day.
Lack of inter-departmental coordination stands as a significant factor of its session jam. The university now experiences three years gridlock or session jam. Students are to spend seven years to complete their four years’ course. The university does not see and monitor how classes are going on, who and how the teachers conduct classes, whether they are to the point or not, whether students can come out of the circle of student life after a certain period of time. To remove the burden of taking exams, examining the scripts and publishing the results on time of the public universities, NU was given the responsibility. After two decades it seems the situation stands in the same place as it had been. It takes one year to publish the results of Masters Examination. It is one of the main causes of session jam along with other causes.
According to the teachers of the affiliated colleges, the university conducts examinations without ensuring that the colleges have completed the syllabus. And syllabus could not be completed within the stipulated time frame due to shortage of teachers and classrooms, they pointed out.
Exam Controller Badruzzaman of NU said, for some unavoidable cause, after one year students get admitted and began their classes under NU. After ending the admission process of other public universities, the admission process of NU begins. After that, admission process of degree (Pass) course begins. For this, this varsity falls one year behind from the other public universities.
The administration of the university is corrupt from head to foot in terms of sincerity, honesty and financially matters. Political recruitment of officials and staff ignoring the transparent way of employing the officers, teachers and staff can be attributed to it. Administrative officials who received appointment on the basis of political affiliations don’t have any accountability, honesty, sincerity to the development of the university. They remain busy to make their fortune by fair means or foul. They don’t bother about rules and regulations of the university. They don’t bother about the higher administration because of their political linings. It is strange to learn that many officials don’t attend even offices regularly contributing to increasing the heap of works. After coming to office many just spend time like the labor leaders in the canteens, taking tea and arranging political discussions. Lack of coordination among these bodies contributes to increasing the problem of NU.
In the face of serious irregularities a fact finding committee was formed to identify the problems and suggest some measures to address the problematic issues. It identified that printing questions in the government press is a long process which is a contributing factor to cause session jam. Examination cannot be taken timely due to it.
National University administration has decided to establish six regional offices in six divisions to bring motion in all the activities of university. It is argued that the students need not go to Gazipur to address the small problems. But many say that it will not lessen the problems rather increases problems manifold and corruption will develop tentacles. In 1999 two Regional Centers were established at Chittagong and Rajshahi respectively but they did not show any efficiency.
In many colleges students cannot use seminar rooms though they give the fees regularly. Colleges are not buying books and NU does not take any step regarding the issue. As students cannot read the books, newspapers and journals in the seminar rooms, they loiter and use their free time fruitlessly. These issues along with the whole academic affairs need to be monitored. No monitoring system has been developed in the NU though teachers and officials at Gazipur Campus are available to do this thing.
There are also complains that, no research is being conducted at all in the NU. No arrangement for sending them outside the country for higher education is done. Research is the life of a university. A university is ranked on the basis of its qualitative and quantities of research. It is evaluated on how many research programs are conducted a year. This university stands hundreds of miles apart from this notion. In case of taking examinations and Viva-voce lobbing gets priority. Some particular teachers earn money neglecting the talented and good ones. They are not allowed to go out of their colleges and engage in these financially academic activities. Syllabuses are changed again and again but in the process the teachers of NU are hardly invited. They complain who do this thing without consulting those remains unknown to them.
In the ranking of universities no university of Bangladesh or SAARC countries occupy any place within 10th or even 100th position. But the number of students of NU far outnumbers many universities of the world. It has ten lakh students in more than two thousand colleges
The National University of Bangladesh is now one of the largest universities in the world after its 17-year history — by its number of registered students at affiliated colleges are suffering for this mighty(!) session Jam. শিক্ষা সংক্রান্ত খবরাখবর নিয়মিত পেতে রেজিস্ট্রেশন করুন অথবা Log In করুন।
