The University of Madras has said it will disaffiliate two colleges in the city if they do not meet the norms prescribed by the University Grants Commission (UGC) before the next admission season. Members of the syndicate said “the university would soon send notices to John Bosco College of Arts and Sciences in Tiruvallur and CSI Ewart Women’s Christian College in Kancheepuram giving them time till March 31st to meet the UGC requirements to run a college. “These two colleges have the required infrastructure, but they do not have a qualified principal and the required number of teachers. If the colleges are unable to meet the norms in the given time, they will not be allowed to take in admissions in the next academic year”, said university vice-chancellor G. Thiruvasagam.
Acting on complaints from students and parents, a three-member committee visited John Bosco and CSI Ewart College, made enquiries and submitted a report to the syndicate. By January end, the syndicate recommended the disaffiliation of AA Arts and Science College in Koyembedu, J. A. Arts and Science College in Mogappiar East and Poonga College of Arts and Science in Uthandi for failing to create the necessary infrastructure and required faculty over the last eight to 10 years. More than 90 students from two of the colleges have already been placed in nearby colleges, Thiruvasagam said. Poonga College had stopped admissions last year. Students join colleges because they have faith in the university that these colleges are affiliated to. After they gain admission, they find that the colleges have no library or lab facilities, no sports equipment and inadequate and under qualified faculty. The university has the responsibility of stopping such colleges from cheating students, Thiruvasagam said. He said students and parents should make efforts to get first hand information about a college before gaining admission there. In order to ensure such episodes don’t occur in the future, the university plans to launch a website that will soon spell out infrastructure and faculty details of colleges affiliated to the university. The website will give the required number of faculty and the existing faculty and their qualifications with photograph for each college.
