The view from Flinders

With all Adelaide eyes on North Terrace down south Flinders U management says it is getting on with things and “welcomes competition which it regards as an important driver of innovation and quality teaching to the benefit of students.”

The campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union see the “prospect of a mega merger” by the state’s other two universities as an opportunity, “to abandon the neoliberal bandwagon and create a new and unique university culture and student experience (to differentiate and stand boldly apart). Perhaps the VC and council might want to resurrect the socially-critical, socially-just university culture Flinders was once famous for, with higher staff to student ratios, and a genuinely staff-powered research and learning culture.”
