pat-byrnes-the-reorganization-is-fairly-straightforward-cartoonFollowing the initial communication last week giving an overview of the proposed re-organisation of the International Academy, the IWGB has been in touch with management with various questions which are of concern to members and to staff in general.

We’ve asked for further detail on the rationale behind why each team has been placed where it is in the structure, how the proposed new structure links to any broader, longer-term aims for the Academy/the University, and what will happen after the consultation period ends.

We’re planning to hold a meeting next week to feed back the University’s response, give people a chance to raise more questions and discuss what sort of response we should make to these proposals.

More details to follow, but if you have any questions or concerns in the meantime please do contact Catherine at
