VC Statement - Update on protest
29 October 2015
Dear Staff and Students
I was asked to engage a group of protesting workers and students who made a series of demands of management.
I addressed them and provided management’s responses to these demands today, as per our previous communication in this regard. We have agreed to engage further with some of their representatives, as part of a wider stakeholder engagement, and I have undertaken to provide a response to the group on Sunday.
The University remains open and focussed on its academic programme and other operational functions, and Campus Control has been mandated to facilitate this. The police are also on standby, should they be required.
