Colleges fail to meet university 
criteria, but still get affiliations

Rajshahi University (RU) is going to approve two more colleges, even though it has been alleged they have failed to meet the university criteria. It has also been alleged that most of the colleges approved by RU have failed to meet at least 10 conditions out of the necessary 13. These colleges have submitted documents with false information regarding manpower and infrastructure. University sources say there are a total of 14 affiliated colleges under RU, among which 11 are engineering and three agricultural colleges.

Many advanced colleges are functioning from rented houses, albeit the university-affiliated colleges must have their own building. These colleges also do not have the required number of students and teachers. Meanwhile, Epsilon College and Global Engineering College have closed their operations.

Anwara College of Bio-Science in Dinajpuand KSFL Engineering College submitted applications for university affiliation. Sources say these two colleges would get the approval in the next Education Council meeting. Experts say if the colleges that have failed to meet the criteria are given affiliations, it will have negative impact on the expansion of higher education.

Prof. Manjur Hossen, director of the Institute of Biological Science under RU, said if the law is violated, it would corrupt the whole system. “The authorities concerned must verify all information before giving affiliations to these colleges,” he added. University college inspector Dr M Mazibur Rahman said some colleges submit false documents. “When university inspectors visit the site, they are shown a building, while these colleges function from a completely different site after getting affiliation. Similarly, they say they have 20 teachers, but, in reality, they have a lesser number of teachers. We're trying to revoke the affiliation of those colleges which haven’t fulfilled the criteria set by the university,” he added.
