Trickle-down effect

The ambitious restructure of the Swinburne University library and student support services ( CMM September 12) is off to a slow start.

The consultation period, and with dozens of jobs involved there is plenty to consult about, was supposed to conclude on Friday, but it has now blown out to October 13. The university still plans to have the new structure in place by December.

“We have had some wonderful ideas come through from all parts of Swinburne which has been amazing,” student administration and library services director Michelle Gillespie told staff Friday. Ms Gillespie also asked “people leaders”, to encourage feedback “so can you please cascade this to your teachers and academics,” she asked.
