Changing the Size/Shape of the Academic Schools

The University have asked for feedback on a proposal to reduce the number of Schools from 12 to 7, and we would like your feedback on a couple of simple questions to help inform our response.

The proposal lists a number of reasons with the prime being to create a “greater resilience of Schools and flexibility to respond to changes whether arising from subject-specific growth and/or decline in student recruitment, changes in government policy or changes in the research and enterprise landscape” (School Size and Shape Discussion Document).
