Committee to resolve issues

THE Higher Education Ministry will meet representatives of private higher education institutions once a month to enable issues or problems to be settled quickly. 

Minister Datuk Mustapa Mohamed said a committee for the purpose would be set up. 

“This committee must involve the smaller institutions too as they have their own problems, which may be different from those of the larger ones,” he told reporters after launching a seminar on the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) last week. 

The setting up of the committee was the result of a dialogue the minister had held with representatives from the private higher education sector. 

“We are working out the details on who will be representing the ministry in this committee, which will be empowered to deal with any problems brought up,” he said. 

When contacted, Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (Mapcu) deputy president Dr Parmjit Singh said it was a positive move. 

“Previously, whenever we had any problem, we would approach the ministry on an ad hoc manner. It’s good to have this channel for communication,” he said.
