UGC issues guidelines for recruitment of faculty in higher educational institutions


NEW DELHI: The University Grants Commission (UGC) issued guidelines on Tuesday for recruitment of faculty members in institutes of higher education to address the issue of shortage of quality teaching staff in such institutions.

In a letter written to vice-chancellors of universities and to colleges and institutions deemed to be universities, the UGC said the shortage of quality teaching faculty in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) was a major concern and needed to be addressed immediately for improving the quality of higher education.

“Shortage of quality teaching faculty in HEIs is one amongst the many issues presenting confronting the higher education system in the country. This is also affecting the quality of higher education. Therefore, the guidelines should be followed by HEIs to ensure timely filling up of vacant faculty posts with appropriately eligible and component candidates.” the UGC said.
