The situation at the four State-run universities are slowly returning to normal, says an optimistic Higher Education Secretary Prof. David Kavanamur.

He said the riot that happened yesterday at the University of Papua New Guinea’s Waigani campus was done by a small minority group, but the majority wanted to return to class.

“University of Papua New Guinea Medical School is in full swing of teaching.

“All post-graduate programs and Open College is running at UPNG.

“The University of Natural Resources and Environment had been having classes at Vudal for two months now,” Kavanamur said.

He said students attending the University of Goroka will resume classes after the two-week suspension of classes.

“University of Technology, they were supposed to resume but the normalcy and stability is maintained by vice-chancellor on the ground,” Kavanamur said.

He added that any decision to fully suspend the academic year is the decision of each university’s academic senate.
