MARTIN BEAN SPEAKS:
Womin Djeka everyone,
It's over 6 months now since most of us left campus in Melbourne to work remotely.
I don't think any of us would have predicted that back in March.
COVID has taken a toll on all of us, both personally and professionally and I thank you for all you’re doing to support each other, RMIT, your community and loved ones.
The announcements by the Premier over the weekend provided some much-needed encouragement that we’re making good progress on the roadmap to COVID normal.
Every report of low case numbers makes the light at the end of the tunnel just that little bit brighter, and I know how much we all want our lives to return to a sense of normality.
This week I shared with our Melbourne students what we anticipate Semester 1 2021 will look like.
Learning will be a mix of face-to-face and online, and we'll be smart about how we use our shared spaces.
Now I don't need to tell you that COVID-19 is unpredictable so we'll prepare for any eventuality, but all going well we should have plenty of life back on campus when our students start back in 2021.
As we wrap up the academic year for 2020 and our graduands prepare for life beyond university, I know you'll continue to support our students and our broader community every way you can.
Despite all the challenges, we've achieved so much in 2020 and I'm grateful for your commitment to RMIT and the great work we do.
We continue consultation on the change proposals we announced over the last few weeks and I know this is an extremely challenging time for those of you impacted by the proposals.
I wish the circumstances were different, but as we discussed during our recent all staff meeting, it's essential that we reduce our costs and align our operations to the new environment we face.
Consultation timelines vary so I encourage you to check the details on Worklife and share your thoughts. Every piece of feedback will be assessed and considered before final decisions are made.
Our consultation process will continue throughout October, and we'lll provide updates on outcomes and next steps along the way.
Even if you're not directly impacted by change proposals, I know you're affected by the impact on colleagues and the people you care about and I know it's not easy, so I want to assure you that care and respect for all our people will remain an absolute priority.
Please keep looking out for each other, it's those acts of kindness that make the difference right now, in all our lives.
Thanks for watching and hank you for everything you're doing.
