We, the undersigned, believe that student and staff voices and experiences are vital to the proper operation of University Council and urge all Members of Parliament to reject changes to the composition of the University’s highest decision making body.
Why is this important?
Flinders University Council is the highest decision making body in the university. There is legislation before the South Australian Parliament that will cut the size of Council and the number of elected staff and students. The current composition of the Council includes 4 elected staff and 3 elected students in a total of 21 members. Eleven members are external to the University. Cutting any of the elected positions will compromise the access of external Council members to the varied experiences and opinions of staff and students, and reduce the ability of staff and students to participate in decision-making.
