Property, pedagogy or both at U Tas

Uni Tas has  announced the “concept master plan” for the Sandy Bay campus, as the university relocates into the CBD. While it appears opponents in the CBD are consulted into agreement or resignation, opposition is underway at Sandy Bay, from residents and the university community both.

The Mercury cartoonist John “Polly” Farmer summed up one take on the debate Friday with Vice Chancellor Rufus Black doing a Schrödinger, placing the university as cat into a Hobart city box to test whether, “it can simultaneously be both a tertiary facility and a property developer.”
