UPNG welcomes reconciliation with students

The University of Papua New Guinea administration has welcomed the request by the students for reconciliation.

The Student Representative Council has written to the vice chancellor and management requesting for a reconciliation meeting.

UPNG acting Chancellor Dr Nicholas Mann told Loop PNG that the university welcomes the idea and mediators will be involved.

Classes at the main Waigani Campus are yet to fully commence and students met with their School administrations today to discuss the idea.

Dr Mann said the students don't need to waste more time.

“Just come to school, say sorry and go to class,” Dr Mann said.

Meantime, a joint communique will be released later today by the Chief Secretary Isaac Lupari following a meeting earlier today with heads of the universities.

According to the reports provided, UPNG School of Medicine and Health Sciences had commenced classes last week and the taurama campus reported 100 per cent attendance.

However, resumption of classes at the main campus has got off to a slow start with only a few classes conducted in the science faculty.
