BEIRUT: Classes resumed for thousands of students Friday at Lebanese University following a tentative agreement reached over a strike by academic staff.
Education Minister Elias Bou Saab said LU contact professors would work to ensure the transition back to class occurred seamless as possible after the ongoing work stoppage.
The professors have agreed to hold exams but warned they would not grade the tests until their demands were met.
The deal between Bou Saab and the part-time LU professors was reached late Thursday, hours after they held a sit-in outside the Grand Serail to coincide with a Cabinet meeting.
The professors had threatened to continue boycotting the exams as well as test correction until the government responded to their demands, which include promoting contract lecturers and making them full-time workers.
