University of the South Pacific’s Journalism programme students had their classes cancelled this week following the resignation of the head of department, Dr Ian Weber.
While the university has opted to remain mum on the issue and has not made any statement in the media regarding the resignation and cancellation of classes, FijiLive has established that a group of students were told on Thursday that a meeting has been arranged for tomorrow.
A student who did not wish to be named said they have been told that Faculty of Arts, Law and Education School of Social Sciences Dean Dr Akenisi Kedreyaki will be holding a meeting with journalism students and will elaborate more on the issue.
It is believed the teaching assistants for the programme have also left USP, forcing the class cancellations.
Dr Weber replaced Dr Marc Edge a year ago as the head of the journalism programme.
