On Friday 12th August, RMIT decided to discontinue the program, the only disability specific degree course in Victoria.
There are thousands of people living in Victoria who have a disability, with a relatively small pool of workers to support them. The cessation of this course will broaden the gap of an already under-qualified and under-manned work force.
RMIT, among other institutions, currently utilise the website, Turnitin, to detect plagiarism in student work.
Its use undermines the right to a presumption of innocence. And creates distrust between students and staff and is not in the interest of developing quality relationships.
It further isolates students from the university community, rather than building a close and supportive university environment.
