Democratic Council campaign
At the Lincoln branch we are concerned about the removal of the democratically elected positions on the council and what this will mean with regards to staff and student representation.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
We believe that councils want to do the right thing. We believe that university and wānanga leaders want to do the right thing. We just need to show them publicly that they have the support they need to stand up against the intent of the government’s new law.
We will be asking alumni, staff, student and local communities to sign an petition, make submissions in response to the proposed changes and lobby our local councillors.
Please write a submission of response by April 22 ( remember to send a copy to the TEU office firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Lincoln University Council Composition consultation document
- Petition calling for one-third democratically elected staff and students on Lincoln’s council (pdf)
- Lincoln submission template (word)
- Poster advertising information and submission writing workshops led by Professor Jack Heinemann from Academic Freedom Aotearoa on Wednesday April 1 in Commerce 6 between 1.00- 3.00pm
