Countries vice-chancellors of public universities have agreed to take the government colleges under their supervision with a view to ensuring higher quality education.
Vice chancellor of Dhaka, Chittagong and Rajshahi, decided it in an urgent meeting held at UGC Bhaban Agargaon in the capital today.
The university grants commission (UGC) chairman Professor Dr AK Azad Chowdhury said that the UGC has also formed a six-member committee to oversee the process.
UGC called the meeting after getting an education ministry letter on November 5 following the direction of the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit to the ministry.
