College in Malta mandates wearing of student IDs

Andrew Hudson   ||   Jan 13, 2017  ||   ,

The Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) has made the wearing of student ID cards compulsory for students and faculty while on campus.

According to a report from The Independent, the new ID card policy has been classed as standard procedure, and is seen as one possible way to better ensure the safety and security of students and other members of the university community.

The visible display of IDs comes after a series of incidents involving unauthorized individuals appearing on MCAST's campus, some of whom had been accompanied MCAST students. From a security standpoint, the college has deemed unauthorized individuals on campus as unacceptable and the new ID card measure is expected to act as another in a number of measures and deterrents that MCAST has implemented to ensure student safety and secure.

MCAST said that the wearing of student credentials is a standard measure undertaken by a number of reputable educational institutions across the world. The ID policy will be enforce for all senior management at the college and will also be gradually introduced for other college staff members in the near future.
