IBA introduces questionable policies on mid-pandemic reopening.

Students have had enough of online classes. Hours of staring at a screen, understanding absolutely nothing, has not only taken a toll on students’ academics but also their mental health. And quite frankly, we have had enough. This is why, when IBA decided to (partially) reopen their campus, students were stoked! Finally, no more Zoom classes.

Sounds a little too good to be true, given the state of Pak university administrations. Perhaps the only thing private and public universities have in common is an inefficient administrative system. An invisible force brings universities together when making administrative decisions to make sure they make the worst possible ones! At least, they’re united in some way.

So, in true Pak uni fashion, IBA decided to hold a meeting with the special agents of lousy management and came up with this:

Image may contain: text that says 'Please note, if a student contracts Covid-19, he/she will not be given any leeway in attendance. Absences allowed for a course as per policy will remain inforce and no exception on medical grounds will be given. Use your absences wisely, be cautious in late comings and in skipping classes. Itis It essential that all students take these guidelines seriously. A stricter adherence to the SOPs is now needed more than ever before to contain the spread of this virus.'

Wow. Truly a win for both IBA and the Coronavirus. IBA gets praise for “smartly” reopening the campus, and COVID-19 gets a playing field to spread onto thousands of people. Are sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Maybe they’ll be commended all over the world for their “policies” too.

The losers? Students. Not only do they lose grades if they catch the virus, but they also lose peace of mind, money, and (potentially) their lives. In the midst of a GLOBAL PANDEMIC, the least universities and schools could do is be empathetic towards their students. 

After all, it is their responsibility to serve them. Rather than making this a transaction, they should build a relationship with their students. Take care of them. Listen to what they have to say and deliver.

From fee hikes to rigidity, our universities have done it all! IBA’s example is not some one-off incident. It is cyclical, across the country. Reforms are needed, but will they be made? Find out in the next episode of wishful thinking.
