Ivory Tower will be screened next week by the NTEU at UOW – For Free!
Screening details: Thursday 13th August at 5:30pm, Room 20.4 on Wollongong Campus (communications bld. near library).
This US made doco, produced by the makers of ‘An inconvenient truth’, shines a light on the debt accumulated by US students in their heavily privatised tertiary system. It highlights the pressure on University staff to get ‘results’ above all else and questions if the race to the top in institutional rankings is in fact a race to the bottom. So put the date in your diary, Thursday 13 August, 5.30pm, Room 20.4 & Book your FREE Ivory Tower tx at: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/ivory-tower-free-screening-wollongong-tickets-17720319954
This free screening hosted by our union, the NTEU, aims to help University Staff understand what the Uni Fee Deregulation legislation, proposed by Federal Education Minister Christopher Pyne, is designed to do to Australia public universities. At the screening we will also be explaining what our union, in concert with the rest of our union movement, is doing about the changes proposed. We will be explaining what staff, students and community members can do to Defend Our Universities. To find more about that campaign be there next week on Thursday the 13th August, and you can also check out more about the campaign at; http://www.nteu.org.au/defendourunis/
