Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 1. 1967.

We are short staffed

We are short staffed

Once again the University is starting the year badly understaffed.

At the beginning of February there were 49 vacancies, including nine chairs.

And there is no hope of filling them all by the beginning of the year.

However, an administration official told Salient that:

Several of these vacancies were new positions and it normally takes six months to fill these positions.

Many positions, especially junior ones, will be filled during the year and there will always be vacancies due to transfers, retirements and deaths.

Despite these factors a university with one in six positions vacant is surely not well-equipped to educate a rapidly - expanding student population.
