How the other half live at Uni Melbourne  

In the post from Parkville comes news Uni Melbourne is ready to launch the very flash-indeed Melbourne Connect project, “connecting people, places and possibilities,” on the site of what was the site of the Royal Women’s Hospital. It’s an innovation precinct JV with a property developer Lendlease-led consortium and dates from the reign of Glyn Davis who was keen to embed the university in its local community, at least the hip bit (CMM November 21 2017).

In contrast, down on the ground, there is a protest tomorrow in support of those Uni Melbourne grounds-staff whose jobs are set to be outsourced, apparently as part of the Professional Services Redesign (CMM February 22 and March 25)
