Grooming the students by focusing on their psychological, emotional, and intellectual needs can be best served through a vibrant tutorial system in universities and colleges.
This was stated by Prof. Dr Asghar Zaidi, the Vice Chancellor of GC University Lahore, in his address to the newly appointed tutors and additional tutors at the inception of the new academic session.
The Vice-Chancellor said tutors will carry great importance in their work and this is nothing short of national service in view of the risk of information warfare our youth is facing. He said tutors at GCU would organise discourse sessions, educational trips, quiz contests, poetry and essay writing contests, study circles and invited lectures to let the latent energies of the unchiseled youth come to the surface with a renewed vigour.
“Such young minds will go on to conceive the world as it ought to be and not as it unfortunately is,” he said
He said that the scope of the tutorial system of GCU has been extended to the self-supporting program as well as the programs been offered on the new campus in KSK. “We do not want to leave out any segment of the society from reaping the harvest of this meticulously conceived system of student mentorship,” he said.
The Chief Tutors, Dr. Hafiz Muhammad Naeem, Prof. Inam ul Haq and Mr. Siddique Awan also spoke on the various facets of this reinvigorated system and its practical manifestations.
The tutorial system will commence activities on Friday (today), and a total of 50 tutorial groups will attend the Durs e Quran while the remaining 38 shall go to their designated rooms to attend the tutorial meetings.
