Monash South Africa Student Petition
This petition made change with 2,732 supporters!
The Monash South Africa Student body as whole would like to register its dissatisfaction in the manner in which the school has handled the issue of the sale of the institution. The demands therefore are as follows.
1) Naming rights
We the students, in our capacity as major stakeholders in the business, reject the sale of the institution without naming rights. As students, any such stakeholder willing to acquire a controlling stake in our campus should retain the naming rights of the institution, as such, remain affiliated Monash University as a going concern. The changing of the name of the institution will affect adversely the employability and perception with which the alumni are viewed in the job market. We refuse to be alumni of a non-existent entity.
2) World Class service
2.1 The investment of students both current and former will not be tampered with! The invaluable good faith, commitment, sacrifice and investment made into this school by both current and former students since its inception has been reduced to measly disposable transaction. The school did not have the courtesy to inform or consult with the Student Representative or Students themselves body of the process of the sale of the business. The students have, by choosing this institution over others, contributed not just monetary value but rather a lifelong investment. We have, as stakeholders, patronized the school in the good faith that the institution will strive to improve the quality of our education. The school has failed us again in this regard by failing to maintain the relationship to Monash University Australia. That we will not stand for!
2.2 In line with the value proposition of the campus, the students demand that Monash University Australia retains control of and oversight all academic material and qualifications currently accredited by Monash University that are currently being offered to students. The “World Class” quality qualification that was advertised and promised to the student’s rests solely on the control by (MU) of academic activity on campus.
2.3 Formal, written, legally binding communication by Monash University that the sale of the institution will not affect the academic integrity, quality and accreditation of all current Monash Students.
2.4 Assurance all staff currently employed by MSA will retain employment so as to not jeopardize the standard of service currently being delivered.
