THE newly re-installed vice chancellor of Papua New Guinea's University of Technology, Dr Albert Schram, says he's taking immediate measures to resolve long standing grievances.
Dr Schram has been back at the university in Lae for three weeks after being forced out of the country over a year ago after the university council took issue with a reform program he was undertaking.
He is back after students’ boycotted classes and staged other protests, demanding that he be re-instated as vice chancellor and given a visa to enable his return to PNG.
Dr Schram said he is not taking an aggressive approach but addressing urgent concerns for staff and students.
"The staff has been promised a salary review several times, so that is quite a heavy process that we must start soon.
“For the students, we can make some improvements which will quickly improve their living and learning experience on campus," Dr Schram said.
