The people’s choice at Murdoch U

Gerd Schröeder-Turk is re-elected as staff representative on the university council, with just shy of 70 per cent of first-preferences

 Aspro Schröeder-Turk’s  campaign message was that “collegial empowered committee-based governance structures” are “best suited for a university” and that he is against, “top-down decision making style that alienates the academic body and that carries a risk that committee processes become mere ‘rubber stamping’ exercises.”

Last year the university and Schröeder-Turk abandoned legal actions against each other, flowing from his criticism of Murdoch U’s international student recruitment on ABC TV’s Four Corners (CMM June 15 2020).
