Please Listen to US is the website of a growing group of University of Sussex research students concerned with the way decisions are being made on campus. It seems that the interests of short term growth are more important factors than the long term interests of the campus community. These decisions include ripping up Lingusitics at Sussex, ill-thought out plans for the creche, and shutting down the University’s favourite eatery, the Richmond Café Creperie.
But now we have a chance to make our voices heard. The University leadership’s latest plan is to start playing musical chairs with the staff and students of Law, Politics and Sociology and SPRU by making hasty decisions to force them to move buildings.
We have a simple message, before continuing with these dangerous plans: stop, pause and listen to us.
To get in touch with US, please email Cian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We strongly reject and oppose what we consider to be a poorly thought out and opaquely made decision.
On Wednesday 4th July we celebrated the University of Sussex’s history of strong and inclusive leadership. But that tradition is in danger. Over the last few years more and more decisions are being made in the interests of short term growth rather than the long term interests of the campus community. These decisions include ripping up Lingusitics at Sussex, ill-thought out plans for the creche, and shutting down the University’s favourite eatery, the Richmond Café Creperie.
Before continuing with these dangerous plans, stop, pause and listen to us.
Once again, the directors of the University of Sussex have ignored the opinions of students and staff in the process of taking decisions. Find out why we’re concerned, get information about other unilateral decisions that have affected negatively students and staff at Sussex, and see what we’re asking for this time around.
We demand to meet management team to discuss ongoing decision making in the University, which we believe is detrimentally affecting the welfare of students and staff.
