University Senate to Decide Fate of Department

Campaigners will receive the support of University College Union General Secretary Sally Hunt at a protest tommorrow as local residents, staff and students unite to lobby a meeting of the University Senate against the proposed closure of Reading University's School of Health and Social Care.

"There is no logic whatsoever in closing this school. It provides invaluable training and is completely self-sustaining... Reading should be at the forefront of provision not scaling things back," said Ann Quinn, representative of Reading UCU.

Protesters will meet at 1.30pm tomorrow outside the Agriculture Building on the Earley Gate Campus ahead of the Senate meeting which is due to start at 2.30pm.
