Three faculties of Kelaniya Uni. to open
The administrative authority of the Kelaniya University had decided to re-open the Science, Commerce & Management and ICT & Technology faculties of Kelaniya University from Monday (3), Kelaniya University’s media unit said.
The university was temporarily closed except for the Medical Faculty on Thursday (30) following a protest staged by a group of students.
The university’s management decided to close the university except for the medical faculty at 10.00a.m until further notice for security reasons.
Its director, Senior Lecturer Wijayananda Rupasinghe told Daily Mirror that the University began lectures on Tuesday (28) following the Easter Sunday terror attack. After re-opening the university, its senior management had decided to close all the sections including lecture rooms and canteens by 9.00 pm for security reasons.
However, a group of students who thought this was unfair, staged a protest against the decision. “Two faculties, namely the Social Science and Humanities faculties, will remain closed,” Mr. Rupasinghe said. He said all students except those attending courses in these two faculties will be allowed to return.
