The Sectoral Oversight Committee on Education and Human Resource Development has conversed the change of the Shariya University in Batticaloa into a public-private institution with the university management yesterday.
The members of the Sectoral Oversight Committee on Education and Human Resource Development include Professor Ashu Marasinghe, Rohini Kumari Wijeratne and S. Viyalendran, who all visited the university yesterday and had made this proposition after meeting the university management.
One of the three members who visited the university said they conversed the option of adapting the university into a public-private institution and not to carry out courses based on any particular religion.
When asked whether the university management decided to adapt the university into a public- private institution, the member of the oversight committee said they did not give them an official plan. He said an official application will be presented to parliament shortly.
