Note to staff

National Day of Action

As many of you will be aware, the National Union of Students has called a National Day of Action today (26 March) to protest against funding cuts in higher education.

Curtin’s Student Guild is participating in today’s protest and I want to reinforce Curtin’s support for our students’ involvement in the National Day of Action and their right to engage in peaceful protest.

I would also like to reiterate the University’s concerns about the Australian Government’s funding cuts. The strongest nations in our region are investing in their best resource – the minds of students – by driving skills and research at universities and the challenge is for Australia to match this investment or risk falling behind its neighbours.

These concerns are also being expressed by other universities around the country and we support efforts to highlight this risk to the Federal Government.

Staff should note that the Curtin Student Guild is holding a protest at Henderson Court today from 12.30pm before going into the city for the central demonstration at 2.00pm.
