pura student union office sealed J'pura student union office sealed

2013 Sep 25

The university administration has taken steps to seal the Students Union office of University of Sri Jayewardenepura, yesterday (24).


The reason has been cited as the lack of fulfilling requirements needed to maintain a “Student Union”.


According to the regulations, a university lecturer must bear the post of the union Treasurer for it to be legal.


However, the decision to close down the Student Union Office in J'pura University has been taken citing that there is no lecturer to bear this post.


Expressing their views on the matter, student union representatives said that the university administration has been threatening lecturers not to take up senior treasurer posts, compelling them to quit most of the time.


They further emphasize that the current situation is a administration issue and not the students' fault.
