Differences between the academic staff of the University of Mauritius (UoM) and the Minister of Higher Education, Rajesh Jeetah. Lecturers object to open a vet school.
At a meeting on the campus of Reduced, several university officials have made clear to the Minister Jeetah that creating such a school does not fit the vision of the UoM. They have made it clear to the minister that there are currently other priorities that need attention, including the purchase of equipment and the disbursement of additional funds for the benefit of the ability to fund scientific research by students.
However at the Ministry of Higher Education, we do not hear it that way. Minister Jeetah seems to have made ??the vet school a priority. It is already in contact with the JIS Group Educational Initiatives based in India. Besides the website of this institution, we can discover: "An International Veterinary College is coming up at Mauritius."
The Minister would have ordered the academic staff of the UoM to activate the procedures to allow for future veterinary school, to provide courses on the campus of Reduced before the end of this year. The lecturers, however, have made ??it clear to Rajesh Jeetah "you can not break the rules of the University of Mauritius."
The tone between academics and the minister is up a notch, when teachers have launched the minister that "he can not sacrifice quality over quantity."
At the University of Mauritius, have emphasized that the minister wants the implementation of several projects. In addition to this veterinary school, Rajesh Jeetah expressed its intention to open a medical school in White Mountain, and a second campus of the University of Technology (UTM) in the former headquarters of the Mauritius Broadcastig Corporation (MBC) at Forest-Side.
