Nancy-Out Campaign In Manchester University

Due to “complete failure management” during the pandemic, Manchester University students urge the vice-chancellor to quit.

For the first time in Manchester University’s 200 year history, the students will hold a vote of no-confidence in the vice-chancellor. If the vote is successful in March, it will be reported to the university’s board of governs. Then, the university should decide to take further action.

The student union said it was a response to “complete failure management” during the pandemic. A series of failures such as fences around halls of residence, an alleged racial profiling incident, and reports of heavy-handed policing made unreliable current Vice-chancellor and the students wanted a change.

The students started “Nancy Out” campaign at the university. One of the student organisers of the campaign said: “The frequency and volume of mistakes and complete disregard for students make clear it’s not a one-off thing, it’s a complete failure of management.”

A University of Manchester spokesperson said: “We have all worked very hard to provide all our students with the best possible learning and student experience in these unprecedented and challenging circumstances. We have not got everything right, but we are committed to working closely with student representatives to address concerns and meet student needs.”

It is believed that after the action of the students at Manchester University, the management of the university should take action in March.
