During the semester break, the $40M restructure continued to unfold at UWA. We saw a shocking announcement about the gutting of Social Sciences- the axing of anthropology and sociology, 16 staff cuts, a shift away from research, and a 35:1 student-staff ratio target.
Nothing about this restructure is good for students, or staff. It is about making the university more profitable and linked more closely with industry, particularly the mining sector in WA. It prioritises the bottom line over our education. We need to come together as students to protest against this proposal. We won't stop fighting until we're heard!
