The Case for MMU Cheshire


What is the future for MMU Cheshire?

 The Vice Chancellor and the Board of Manchester Metropolitan University are currently considering proposals to cut back or close our Crewe campus.

Plans set out by consultants Deloitte could result in:

  • potential redundancies: up to141 academic jobs plus technical and support staff
  • fewer courses and a narrower range of learning experiences for future students
  • shrinking of the public Higher Education sector in the region
  • the permanent loss to the community of Crewe and East Cheshire of the cultural and economic benefits of a local public University.

UCU opposes compulsory redundancies

We call on all staff and students to support your MMU colleagues.

 UCU believes that increased investment in the Crewe campus can build on MMU’s achievements and ensure a sustainable academic and financial future.
