A NEW WARDEN FOR GOLDSMITHS – An opportunity to show we can do things differently

The Warden has resigned and a new one will be taking over the role in February. Goldsmiths UCU is campaigning alongside Goldsmiths SU to democratise the way the new warden is chosen and to demand that any new warden is sought on the basis of their commitment to universities as public institutions of learning and research. The introduction of competition between universities for money and student numbers is proving disastrous for the sector, and this appointment is an important opportunity to show that we can do things differently. Please join us in the campaign:

PUBLIC LETTER: Add your name to the public letter to the Chair of Goldsmiths Council regarding the appointment of the new warden.

STAFF STUDENT ASSEMBLY THURS 22 NOV, 2pm, PSH BASEMENT: Join the next staff student assembly where we will discuss why this matters and how how we can democratise the appointment. (We’ll then all be leaving at 3:30pm to go to the 4pm College Council). Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2324562450906056/

STAFF-STUDENT CONSULTATION: Take part in the on-line consultation. Further ideas for the kind of Warden that could genuinely make a different at Goldsmiths can be viewed here.
