Twenty-two of the 24 members of the Academic Council participated in the session of the Academic Council of the Faculty. Vahram Dumanyan was nominated for the position of Dean by the three chairs of the faculty.
Vahram Dumanyan, presenting his program, mentioned that he will continue to implement the goals and priorities of the faculty, which were developed on the basis of YSU strategic development plan in 2016-2020. According to him, everything will be done so that the faculty can maintain its leading position by providing high-quality professional education. The speaker also touched upon the important issue of involving young people in the working process.
During the session of the Academic Council of the faculty a comprehensive discussion was held on the problems existing in the educational system, as well as they touched upon the decision of the Government of the Republic of Armenia No 451-N after April 12, which relates to the procedure for granting the right to a deferment.
“I find unacceptable the procedure for granting the right to a deferral, where such conditions are set which do not promote the interests of education. The aforementioned decision has been taken without regard to the opinion of the stakeholders. The draft resolution on the official website of the Armenian government did not mention the change in the procedure of granting the right to a deferment,” - he added. The Dean expressed hope that the new government will review that decision.
Members of the Academic Council of the faculty also expressed their position on the issue.

Dean is elected at the faculty council by secret ballot for a five-year term.
