Sabaragamuwa University Commences Academic Activities

Sabaragamuwa University commenced academic activities of the Advanced Certificate Course on sustainable peace through pluralism and inclusive service delivery, becoming the first of the four
universities where the course will be taught to do so. The course, funded by Freedom House, will deliver conceptual knowledge as well as work related methodologies to the frontline government officers so that they could provide a better service to the public who receive these services. The course content covers inclusive service delivery, nonviolent communication for service delivery, service delivery in a plural society, frontline service delivery and field practicum.

The government officers who attended the first day of the lectures have shown a keen interest. One of the academics who delivered the lectures said that many officers were enthusiastic and that the sessions were more interactive than expected.

The final implementation of the project has been delayed due to strikes in university system and the economic crisis. NPC expect to conclude the project at the other three universities - Jaffna, Ruhuna and Eastern - within the next few months.
