Greens Education Spokesperson, Senator Mehreen Faruqi, has called for urgent measures to protect staff, students and the university sector from the impact of Covid-19 and similar international shocks.
The Greens are calling on the Government to immediately:
1. End the Liberal government’s funding freeze on Commonwealth Supported Places.
2. Commit to boosting funding per-Commonwealth Supported Place student by 10 percent in the upcoming budget.
3. Guarantee the jobs and income of university staff on insecure contracts during the travel ban.
