JU environmental science students demand relocation of department

  • Published at 07:02 pm April 2nd, 2015

Students of environmental science department of Jahangirnagar University (JU) yesterday demanded that the university authorities take steps to shift their department to a newly constructed building on the campus.  

They brought out a procession to place home their demand that the department be relocated from the Old Arts Faculty building as they were facing numerous problems to carry out academic activities there.    

The agitating students also declared to form a human chain before the office of the university’s vice-chancellor on Saturday.

Talking to the Dhaka Tribune, many teachers of environmental science said they could not relocate the department to the newly constructed Science-Computer Science and Engineering-Environmental Science building due to resistance from the authorities of the departments housed there.

Earlier in 2002, the JU syndicate allotted the second floor of the newly constructed building to environmental science department which had begun its academic activities at a one-storied temporary building adjacent to Old Arts Faculty building in 1999.

Prof Dr ANM Fakhruddin, the chair of the department, said they were facing numerous problems to carry academic and research activities due to lack of sufficient spaces in the existing building.

JU Registrar Abu Bakr Siddique said they were trying to find a solution to the problem soon.
