An Academician at the Copperbelt University (CBU) has called for change in the Policy that allows the sale of alcohol in institutions of higher learning saying it is the cause of chaotic behavior and unrests among students.
Director of Mind Set Education at CBU’s Dag Hammerkjold Institute for Peace and Conflict, Myunggoo Lee, in an interview told ZANIS said world over, only African countries such as Zambia allow the sale of alcohol in institutions of higher learning.
Prof. Lee said a university is a place whose inhabitants are expected to battle it out with books and other tools of research not bottles and cigarettes.
He has since called on relevant stakeholders at CBU to revisit the Policy which allows the sale of alcohol at the campus and make necessary amendments.
The academician said selling of alcohol in institutions of higher learning is a serious problem which can bring among other issue, noise pollution to non-student members.
Prof Lee observed that alcohol consumption reduces learning ability in learners.
