Australian unis: melting down into crisis

A new collection of essays on what’s wrong with universities is imminent

It’s edited by ANU economist and economic historian William Coleman, called Campus Meltdown: the deepening crisis in Australian universities and to be published by Conor Court.

CMM has not seen a copy but contributors are said to include former Macquarie U VC Steven Schwartz. NSW Solicitor General Michael Sexton, who writes on law schools and the campus free-speech debate.

CMM is especially waiting for for Gigi Foster (UNSW) on teaching quality and Ruth Williams (La Trobe U) on “the academic social welfare dysfunction” and John Lodewijks on what managerialism hath wrought.
