Priya De 2 by Paradigm Shift published on 2019-02-21T06:28:22Z Ian talks with Priya about Saving the UQ Union Complex. 1. 1 What is a university about? Former PM Tony Abbott want the University to favour Western Civilization. Is this was a University should be doing? 2. When I first went to the university of Queensland in 1968 only the top 2% of secondary school students enrolled at university; most of these were from private schools, has this changed and why? 3. 4 What are the bosses up to at the University of Queensland? Why do they wish to demolish the UQ Union complex and the Schonell theatre that were built in the 1950s & 1960s? 4. Moving now to the ownership of the UQ Union complex. The UQ student Union is the elected body of students whose fees have provided funds to build the union buildings, the refectory and the Schonel theatre. So why doesn't the ownership of the buildings lie with the union and it's members in the same way that your union, the National Tertiary Education Union, owns it's premises at Taringa? 10 You are a student union counsellor, why didn't your union act to take legal ownership of the union buildings?
