UNIVERSITY IMPOSES BAN ON LECTURERS SELLING TEXTBOOKS AND ELIMINATES GENDER SPECIFICATION IN EXAMINATIONS

Date:

The University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), under the guidance of the Committee of Provost and Deans (CPD), has implemented new policies. The sale of textbooks and materials by lecturers is now prohibited. Additionally, the practice of specifying genders on exam scripts has been eliminated. This decision was outlined in a memorandum signed by the school’s Registrar, Dr. Gloria Chindah.

The changes were made during the CPD’s 410th emergency meeting on August 4. The university aims to eradicate all forms of gender discrimination. The memo states that exams will no longer have gender-based separation, and the marking of “F” and “M” on answer booklets is discontinued.

Furthermore, the tradition of course lecturers selling books through course representatives has been abolished. Assignments will no longer be tied to the purchase of textbooks, workbooks, and manuals.
