Call to end UWA cuts

Supporters of UWA social sciences are petitioning university chancellor Robert French and top management to call off the cuts

The change proposal for the School of Social Science (CMM yesterday) effectively abolishes anthropology and sociology and reclassifies positions across other disciplines from teaching and research to teaching only.

“We believe the proposed changes will undermine the reputation of the University of Western Australia as a world class institution of learning and research.”

The change proposal is open for consultation to July 20.
