A post-disaster review meeting of KU office bearers led by Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ram Kantha Makaju Shrestha and Registrar Prof. Dr. Bhola Thapa was held on 1 May 2015 in KUSOM complex.
According to Prof. Shrestha, the University is working to save lives of affected people who have been rescued and brought to Dhulikhel Hospital KU Hospital. We are treating them, taking their care and catering to their basic needs in rehabilitation, said Prof. Shrestha. He also highlighted the need to to work towards their settlement. This, naturally, would come side by side with resuming the University's academic activities as early as possible.
Prof. Thapa briefed about the activities of different units in KU. Emphasizing on working collaboratively, he stated that KU has been doing these activities to accomplish social responsibility. Among others, he also provided example of the invovlement of KUTechnical Training Centre, which has been building toilets and beds. The Centre has aimed to construct 100 shelters for the victims, some of which will be provided to the families of staffs and facutlies whose residences have been completely damaged by the earthquake.
Prof. Dr. Ramesh Kumar Maskey, Associate Dean, SoE, and Dr. Prachanda Man Pradhan, along with other members of Inspection and Reporting of Structural Damages presented initial findings of building inspection. The preliminary report showed that most of the infrastructures are structurally safe but are in need of repair and maintenance. A final report of the study will be presented in the next review meeting.
Prof. Dr. Kanhaiya Jha, Director of Student Welfare, informed how the Student Welfare Directorate manged students in Central Campus during the first 72 hours of panic and confusion. According to him, the students who were in festive mood of impending sports week had to be redirected to relief activities and that it was somehow a tough job.
The meeting also discussed the possibility of resuming classes as early as possible. However, a decision on when and how to start academic programs in a full-fledged way, which every office-bearer agreed, could be reached after a detailed plan of action on repair, maintenance and relocation after the recommendation of the damage assessment team. Meanwhile, the University offices would remain open and relief activities continued with the involvement of more and more staffs and students.
