A distinguished gathering of educators and administrators from the educations sectors of SAARC member nations are participating in this workshop, which concludes on Sunday, October 12.

Minister of Higher Education, S.B. Dissanayake said:

[quote]Till 2010, our universities were dominated by the extremist student groups for a period of a decade and we managed to rescue those universities from them. And now universities are run by the vice chancellors, deans, HODs as well as the professional administrators of the system. I think these changes were very crucial to make the university system right.  [/quote]
