Ex-President warns on ‘asset-stripping’

Former DCU President Ferdinand von Prondzynski writes on the silent crisis facing Irish universities, now reduced to ‘half the per capita funding of other OECD countries’ amidst a programme of staffing cuts, pay cuts, and ‘asset-stripping’.

Of particular relevance to staff in Irish universities is Von Prondzynski’s conclusion:

‘… most alarming of all is that all this is happening with very little public noise, perhaps in part because the system has been distracted by a very doubtful new framework of restructuring. If I were still working in Ireland, I would be very afraid.’
