A story from SPRU

A year ago I decided to come to SPRU to work on a PhD. The decision was easy, world class experts in my field, a long history of real-world impact, and a research-led tradition right at the core of the University of Sussex. Except, I’m not so sure it’s like that anymore.

Now it looks like the University leadership is putting short term growth ahead of long term research. Poor management decisions and even worse communications are alienating staff and students alike. The latest round of musical chairs involving moving SPRU and LPS seem just the latest in a long list. It’s time for our University leaders to stop, pause and listen to us.
