Thanks to everyone who has given their input so far.
The Gold Paper begins from two ambitions: to restate our purpose and reclaim a vision of the public university that is disappearing from view in the midst of the increasing marketisation of HE, while also offering pragmatic steps towards its achievement beginning with what we do at Goldsmiths.
For this to work it must be a grass roots endeavour involving everyone from porters to professors; it must be a collaborative process.
To contribute your ideas email firstname.lastname@example.org (head the email Gold Paper).
Lobby of College Council: We’ll also be lobbying the College Council on Thursday 14 April with a simple demand that College Council timetable a discussion with staff and students on the GOLD PAPER at the next meeting.
