The UCU agrees with Michael Arthur (on this issue)
On Monday, our VC made the following assertion during a degree ceremony speech:
“Never be afraid to admit, particularly in your professional life, that you have got something wrong. It takes a very confident person, and a great strength of character, to make such an admission, but you must demonstrate such leadership and have the courage to change direction and take alternative approaches to solving the problem that you’re grappling with.”
The UCU could not agree more, and we look forward to the University applying this wisdom in the near future.
