Murdoch VC silent on whistleblowing staff

There are calls for Murdoch U to rule out retribution for academics who spoke out on international student entry standards. The VC isn’t talking

The National Tertiary Education Union has asked VC Eeva Leinnonen and chancellor David Flanagan for a “clear and unequivocal written commitment from you, as a matter of urgency, that no action will be taken against employees who provided information (to the Four Corners story on entry standards).”

Last night Professor Leinnonen responded; “you may be aware that there have been calls for the university to comment on our approach to the staff who appeared on the Four Corners programme last week. It is not appropriate for the university to comment publicly on employment matters relating to individual staff members.”
