concerned about impact of job cuts
Māori and Pacific academics at one of the country’s biggest universities are concerned about the impact of job cuts, with one saying the campus feels like a “morgue”.
Auckland University of Technology earlier this year proposed a restructure in an effort to reduce costs.
AUT’s Vice Chancellor, Damon Salesa, said the proposed cuts were driven by a decrease in international student enrolments, rising inflation and neighbouring economic pressures.
Under the proposal, 250 workers could lose their jobs, 170 of whom are academic teaching staff, after the university made a $12 million surplus in 2020 and 2021.
