Roy Greenslade blogs about cuts for The Guardian

Roy Greenslade, professor of journalism at City University London and former editor of the Daily Mirror, has written about the cuts to the Birmingham School of Media on his blog on The Guardian website. From “Journalism students angry at cutbacks” (7 June 2010):

There are concerns among students at Birmingham City University’s school of media that it is to be subject to immediate cuts of £230,000.

They believe it will have a severe impact on the provision of teaching and technical staff, resources, and academic research.

A student emailed me to say: “We are currently trying to mount a campaign to raise awareness of the issue and to perhaps generate solutions.”

To further their cause they have set up a petition (257 signatures thus far) and also a Facebook group (with 600 members).
