19|05 Don’t Kill Science Update
Thanks to all those who took part in today’s Don’t Kill Science Petition March to the Principal! It was great to see so many people showing their support.
Massive thanks to those who signed the petition online and outside the library. We received a whopping 2118 signatures via our online petition and via our student reps outside the library from Monday to Wednesday.
We met with the Principal as planned and passed the petition to him. More information about further meetings will be emailed to all students as soon as possible.
13|05 Sign the SRC’s Don’t Kill Science Petition!
GUSRC invite students to stand together against the proposed cuts in the Faculty of Biomedical and Life Sciences(FBLS) at the University of Glasgow.
- Reductions in research funding and an unplanned increase in student intake this year meant that FBLS had a budget deficit of £2.5m.
- The faculty saved over £1m through staff retiring and not renewing staff contracts- putting more pressure on existing staff.
- This left a deficit of over £1m.
- The University Court sanctioned the formation of a strategic change committee which would look for ways to save the money before moving to a redundancy situation.
- We do not know the findings of the strategic change committee, but it has now moved to a redundancy situation.
- It is being estimated that 18 staff out of the 120 remaining will be made redundant.
THE UNIVERSITY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO FIND THE MONEY TO FUND THE FBLS DEFICIT FROM ELSEWHERE AND HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO DO THIS.
We need to stand together against the proposed cuts at the University of Glasgow and want YOU to sign the petition which we will present to the Principal on Wednesday.
11|05 ILA500 Funding Scheme Extension for 2010/11

Following a successful trial, the scheme is to be extended for 2010/11.
Students who currently receive the ILA500 grant are now invited to reapply to get funding for next year and any graduates thinking about taking on PGT opportunities on a part time basis may also be eligible to apply.

UKGE2010 – Response from Candidates
The General Election is on 6th May – don’t miss out on your opportunity to vote. Have your say on everything from roads and recycling in your area, to the taxes you pay and climate change.
Since Devolution, the number of elections you can vote in has increased. Between council elections, Scottish Government elections, elections for the other devolved Assemblies, and General Elections it can be difficult to know who and what you are voting for each time.
Election Candidates’ Responses
Following a successful student survey on campus and online at the Glasgow Student Vote Facebook Group, the SRC wrote a letter to local MPs to let them know what students want in the run up to the elections.
We have now received responses from candidates and you can view these responses online at UKGE2010 – Glasgow Student Vote section of the SRC’s website.
