Stop Cuts to Semester. No cutting 13 week semester to 12 weeks!

Vice-Chancellor Michael Spence and Sydney University management are pushing to cut our semester down from 13 weeks to 12 at Academic Board this coming Tuesday March 28.

This move would be a disaster for educational quality - we need more staff time and face-to-face learning, not less! It is also an attack on for casual staff who get paid by the week.

Other Universities have gone down the path of providing subjects with as little as 8 weeks tutorial time in their semesters. This is part of a corporate university strategy that wants to reduce staff-to-student time, increase student numbers but slash staff numbers.

Students need more time with staff and each other, not less!
