The 21st century is a label of time by humans. As to persons of good will, there is no telling whether one is of good will or not.

It is probably good sense to be skeptical of any good sense in a place like PNG. The "good" here is of course relative to the beholder.

As to the security of PNG institutions, it is defined by the practices outside of the tertiary institutions (those within their surrounds.

As part of the community in which it is located, I think UPNG is living in a realistic world, (good and bad). If the "realistic world" defines its needs, and the needs (including security needs) must be met, cost effective solutions must be considered, especially for organizations that have continuously experienced declining public subsidy

One of your solutions to the security and fiscal problems of the institutions is to establish a normal police presence campus and the participation of individual students
iversity police can deliver police services to the campus community. If this succeeds, what is there to stop others from the best practice in one institution to be replicated in another and another?

Just as students could earn some money to provide student and staff community protection, your suggestions for contributions by students and faculty could work to make institutions safer places to undertake learning. If this is not going to work, other alternatives such as separation as regionalism and distance education could work to reduce expenditure on security maintenance.

This is another area of discussion and I'll leave it for another time.
