Academics for Public Universities just published new research in the special edition of the Social Alternatives journal.
From the introduction: “Universities matter – most of us can agree on that. They remain a vital, indispensable part of our society. What happens to them as a result of government policies, changing values and altered governance arrangements matters greatly, too. Over the past few decades, universities have changed beyond recognition.” The change beyond recognition is as the research shows bad for students, academics and the future of Australian society.
