Friday 16 September


University Rd by entrance 1




In response to the University’s decision to recommend closure of the Vaughan Centre, alongside 150 redundancies, UCU have organized a lobby on the day of University Council.


Why lobby Council?

The Council is the University’s supreme governing body, and Council is responsible for taking all final decisions on matters of fundamental concern to the institution, including the University’s academic mission and strategic direction. When Council meet on Friday 16 September they will be asked to approve the university leadership teams (ULT) recommendation to close Vaughan, along with recommendations to facilitate the ULTs planned ‘institutional transformation’, which will result in more redundancies. UCU are opposed to both of these objectives.

Please come along during your lunch break, and join our positive show of support for the Vaughan Centre, and our opposition to other redundancies at Leicester. We feel it is important that Council members witness the strength of local feeling about these issues.
