Kent Union President to help decide Vice-Chancellor's pay

March 28, 2018

Kent Union has announced that, from next year, the Union President will be present as a student representative on the University’s remuneration committee.


This is in response to the controversy across the U.K regarding the rising salaries of Vice-Chancellors, including

that of Kent’s former Vice-Chancellor Dame Julia Goodfellow.



Last year Sally Hunt, general secretary of the University and College Union (UCU) called for “far greater scrutiny” on the pay of University chancellors and staff. This is a step by the Union to increase that scrutiny, having a say in the salary of the current Vice-Chancellor – Karen Cox.



The Union has also announced further representation on the University Council for a postgraduate representative, to represent the issues pertaining to PG study across campus.
