Peradeniya Arts Faculty teaching staff suspend academic activities

The teaching staff has decided to suspend all academic activities at the Department of Law – Faculty of Arts at the Peradeniya University until the students’ union gives a written assurance that they will stop assaults and abuse of a section of the students studying in the Department of Law at the University of Peradeniya.

After an attack on a group of students at the department of law in a canteen of the university on the 14th of this month, the teaching staff had taken steps to conduct the teaching activities of the department only through the online system.

After the relevant attack, the academics started the activities through the online system, giving time to the student union to give a written assurance that they will not attack the students who do not get involved in ragging and they will also allow these students the opportunity to use the common areas of the faculty. Vice-Chancellor Prof. M. D. Lamawansa said that the online studies have also been stopped due to the students’ unions not submitting such a written assurance.

The students’ union has been informed that in order to resume the educational activities of the Faculty of Arts, the relevant written assurance must be given.
