On 09-10 June 2021, the Project HERAS Plus supported the University of Applied Sciences in Ferizaj (UASF) to review and revise the internal Regulations. The activity is a part of the process, which aims to harmonize the internal legal framework of the university with the recently adopted Statute.
The two-day workshop took place in the context of supporting the university to implement the Recommendations that emerged from the Baseline Assessment (BA) Report. The BA Report highlights that the new Statute of the university, adopted by the Assembly of Kosovo in December 2020, requires that most of the university regulations must be harmonized and revised.
In the opening of the workshop, Rector Bajraktari praised the Project, and the Project Team, for providing the lead and resources that are vital for UASF in its path towards strategic development. In the other side, Mr. Nehat Dervishi, HERAS Plus Thematic Coordinator for Higher Education, highlighted the excellent partnership and cooperation between the Project and the UASF and noted that further support will be provided in accordance with the Baseline Assessment (BA) Report findings and based the Project earmarked funds for public universities.
The Project Team worked closely with the UASF leadership to address the task of reviewing and revising about 30 Regulations and other internal policy documents. Five working groups (WG) were established in this process, whereas the Rector of UASF, Prof. Dr. Agron Bajraktari, supervised the general proceedings.
