Protest London's 'elite' New College of the Humanities and its £18k fees and lack of diversity

On Sunday June 5, UK academic AC Grayling announced a new 'elite' university in the UK set to rival Oxford or Cambridge.  Touting itself as an 'elite' educational institute, the university announced its faculty roster: which included not a single woman or ethnic minority.

While said to be a means of protecting social science and humanities education in the midst of the cuts to education spending, this venture will only be run 'for profit' and charge students up to £18,000 a year in fees.

Not only does this new school actively promote elitist education for those who can afford it, it makes an old-fashioned and bigoted statement about who holds knowledge in our society: namely white, affluent men.

England, the UK and Europe is full of bright, dynamic and supremely important academics made up of all backgrounds and genders.

Lets send the New College of Humanities a message: we don't want your inflated, expensive degrees and we want our teachers to reflect the richness and diversity of the UK experience.
