Abstract

In a year long study of academic life at the University of Western Sydney, demoralisation was widely reported as workloads escalated in response to trapid expansion and growing student numbers. The burgeoning of the university in service to Sydney's disadvantaged Western suburbs, had not been matched by resourcing for staff who reported they were stretched thin by large cohorts, casualisation and increasing demands of bureaucratic and technological processes.
