Australian Greens Senator for NSW and Spokesperson for Education, Dr Mehreen Faruqi, has called today's approval of the Ramsay Centre by the University of Wollongong 'outrageous' and a slap in the face for students and academics. The Univeristy has today bypassed its own academic senate and approved the centre. Senator Faruqi is a former academic.
Senator Faruqi said:
"This is an outrageous move by the university and a real slap in the face for students and academics who have real and legitimate concerns about the Ramsay Centre.
