Vaile backflip a huge win for uni staff, students and climate
Australian Greens Education spokesperson Senator Mehreen Faruqi has welcomed news that Mark Vaile will not be made Chancellor of the University of Newcastle.
Senator Faruqi said:
“This is a huge win for the university staff and students who fought this terrible appointment, and for the Hunter community.
“Coal bosses have no place in university leadership. The university community spoke out, organised, and knocked this appointment on its head.
