Ongoing moves to tie university ‘outputs’ to the economy and to impose the rules of capitalism on tertiary providers is hollowing out our critical capabilities at the time when they are most needed. In order to reclaim the core mission of our universities, staff and students need academic freedom and ‘workplace’ democracy to contribute to the designing of curriculum, student support services, and research programmes which ensure broad based teaching, learning, and research.
