    Well, when I asked a question about the funding in front of the head of the business school at the main campus he was quite ready to say that the university had to choose where to spend its money and that they had decided to spend it on the (incredibly plush) new business school at the main campus!

    I think its great that Muir really sounds on the defensive there. He’s saying the future is “uncertain” rather than definitely over.

    I think we should be pushing now for a delegation of Crichton students and staff (academic + non academic) to be able to make a presentation to the court/senate (I get confused about the decision making structure)

  1. Crichton Campaigner says:

    At the public meeting on the 20th March, the Principal made it clear he was closing the Crichton in Dumfries, in order to shift funds up to the main campus in Glasgow, not to improve educational opportunities there, but simply to hire ‘academic stars’ for arbitrary ranking points.

    Unsurprisingly this has increased local anger see Council leader Tommy Sloan’s statement calling into doubt the Principal’s honesty.
