Shameful behaviour at top Uni
UWA has found itself at the centre of a scandal surrounding student behaviour, including sexual assault and underage drinking, during its orientation week activities. Paul Murray spoke to Jane Marwick who helped investigate the stories for The West.
I was the General Manager of a Guild (Murdoch) for several years and one of its past Guild Presidents and EVPs, etc., and in the end senior management, wherever, and coordinators of any program, have to take responsibility for the content of their business and the manner in which it is handled and acquitted. The university in question should not be passing the buck and should have managed, by intervention, the matter, and the coordinators of the program and those to whom it was acquitted are directly responsible. Example is our only immortality. Something like what is alleged to have occurred at UWA could not have occurred during my time at the Guild I worked for and at my University (within my jurisdiction), and if it did I would have put up my hand and accepted my share of responsibility - you just don't pass the buck and push the boundaries by referring matters within your jurisdiction to someone else or that it 'was duly noted'...
Where I had to move on folk for inappropriate and inexcusable behaviours and report to the relevant authorities where permissible, even if the rule of law did not support me, I did so while also keeping myself accountable.
