Increasing fundraising efforts see universities’ annual total reach over £1bn

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis27 Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli, Vice-Chancellor, University of Glasgow and Chair of the CASE Europe Board of Trustees, said: “The increase in fundraising levels is a vote of confidence by donors that our sector can change the world for the better. Donating to universities supports life changing research and transformational education opportunities for those who might not otherwise have such access.”  743 total views,  5 views today Universities in the UK and Ireland are fundraising more than ever in an attempt to remain financially sustainable, with over £1billion raised in 2017/18, according to CASE Europe’s annual Ross-CASE survey. Reported levels have increased from £350m secured by 75 universities in 2004/05 to £1.08bn secured by 100 universities in 2017/18.CASE Europe‘s 2019 Ross-CASE survey also shows a significant increase in fundraising levels by ‘Developing’ institutions, which have seen a 51% increase on the previous year. Meanwhile, ‘Emerging’ institutions have seen a 15% increase. The number of universities other than Oxbridge now raising £5m a year has also nearly doubled over the past ten years – from 17 to 31. Universities in Scotland secured the most new funds, raising more than £61.3m, with those in Ireland raising more than £33m in new funds secured, and Welsh universities more than £8.2m.Amounts raised in England ranged from £269.8m by the London region, to £36.6m in the South West and £1.7m in the East of England.Other findings from the 2019 Ross-CASE survey and report include: For the first time on record a university crossed the £300m threshold for new funds secured in a single yearThe average value of an institution’s largest pledge was £2.39m (up from £1.87m in 2016/17)Of the £1.08bn, total new funds from the top three largest pledges contributed £353m (£311m in 2016/17)Cash income from legacies has increased by 19% (following a decrease of 11% from 2015-16 to 2016/17)However, despite significant increases in fundraising levels over the past 10 years, the number of people who donate to their university remains fairly static – currently at 1.3%. Last year also saw a slight dip in donations. Sue Cunningham, President and CEO, Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), said: “As funding sources for higher education are increasingly under pressure, engagement with donors has become fundamental to the success of universities.“Creating a culture of philanthropy with current students and alumni helps ensure new students are able to experience the opportunities that others before them enjoyed.” Advertisement Increasing fundraising efforts see universities’ annual total reach over £1bn Melanie May | 30 April 2019 | Newscenter_img Tagged with: higher education  744 total views,  6 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis27 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Voters approve police reforms and more

first_imgAmong progressive ballot measures passed on Nov. 3, Florida approved raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.Nov. 9 – The 2020 presidential election ended just short of noon ET on Nov. 7, when networks announced that former Vice President Joe Biden had passed the 270 Electoral College votes needed to be declared a winner. Although Biden’s delegate count is now closer to 290, many in the progressive movement are stunned that Donald Trump received over 70 million popular votes, given his blatant failure to contain the coronavirus pandemic and his rabid embrace of far right, racist and neo-fascist elements. Yet behind that disturbing fact, there are strong signs of hope in the variety of progressive referendums passed on state and local ballots.  Stop the cops!Spurred by mass protest against the cop killing of George Floyd in May, 18 police-related measures were on the Nov. 3 ballot in nine cities and four counties in six states. The measures related to police practices, police oversight boards, staffing, funding, the use of police body cams and more.At least ten measures designed to curtail police abuse passed.Measure B in San Diego, Calif., replaced the existing police review board with one appointed by the City Council and having the power to conduct investigations and also subpoena witnesses and documents related to deaths from police interactions and other complaints against police officers.Measure E in San Francisco removed mandatory police staffing levels from the city’s charter. In Portland, Ore., Measure 26-217 established a new police oversight board in the city’s charter. Question 1 on the ballot in Philadelphia added language to the city’s charter calling for police to “eliminate the practice of unconstitutional stop and frisk, consistent with judicial precedent.”In Washington state’s King County voters approved Charter Amendment 1 requiring investigation into all police-related deaths and providing public attorney representation to the decedent’s family during the investigations.The full impact of all these measures remains to be seen, but their passage clearly reflects the ongoing broad and vehement movement against police brutality. More progressive winsBallot referenda for a $15-per-hour minimum wage passed in Portland, Maine, and Florida, despite that state’s presidential vote going to Trump. Portland also voted for rent control, against facial surveillance and for a local Green New Deal. Voters in Wisconsin, Arizona and elsewhere passed referenda to increase public school funding.In Boulder, Colo., a No Eviction Without Representation measure will tax landlords and use the money for legal representation for tenants facing eviction. Colorado also defeated an attempt to restrict abortions, family leave and medical leave. Oregon voters supported a “tax the rich” resolution to fund universal pre-K.  In several states, voters approved decriminalizing a range of drugs.In Mississippi 73 percent of voters finally rejected the “Lost Cause” of the enslaving Confederacy by adopting a new state flag with the former Confederate symbol removed.Gains in representationWhile several centrist Democrats failed to win over incumbent Republicans on the state and local levels, many progressive incumbents were re-elected by wide margins. Winners included “the Squad” of women of color and immigrant descent frequently demonized by Trump:  Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib. Other gains were widespread throughout the country. In New York state progressive educator Jamaal Bowman defeated an entrenched incumbent representative, while in Missouri Cori Bush became the first Black woman to represent the state in Congress. Kim Jackson, a lesbian social justice advocate, became the first out queer member of the Georgia Senate. In Florida, Shevrin Jones is now the first openly gay member of the state’s Senate, while Michele Rayner-Goolsby is the first openly queer Black woman elected to its House of Representatives. In Kansas, Stephanie Byers, who is Indigenous, was elected as the state’s first transgender legislative member. Desperate conditions demand faster changeAll of these wins are to be applauded, but relying on the electoral process for change is coming at a pace that looks like too little, too late in the midst of country-wide crises.  Millions of workers continue to remain unjustly incarcerated by the U.S. injustice system. Nearly a quarter million have already died from COVID-19.  Millions face job loss and the inability to feed and house their families. Police brutality, while challenged, continues to attack the lives of  Black and Brown people. And in this election, no effective measures to curtail environmental destruction were on ballots for voters to okay.Working and oppressed people in the U.S. are in desperate need of real social and economic change. Stopping Trump is important, but fighting capitalism – and its attacks on workers and oppressed peoples – must be the goal. This oppressive system can’t be voted away with a ballot initiative. We need a people’s revolution. This is change that a fight for socialism can bring on!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Top Court has also upheld the Patna FIR and has asked Maharashtra to assist the probe. Maharashtra has been asked to hand over all the evidence in the case to CBI.The Court also held that any future FIR, which is likely to be registered by the Mumbai police in furtherance of its inquiry process under Section 174 CrPC, should also be investigated by the CBI.While invoking its plenary jurisdiction under Article 142 of the Constitution, the top court’s single-judge bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy held that a “fair, competent and impartial investigation is the need of the hour”. “His family, friends and admirers are keenly waiting the outcome of the investigation so that all the speculations floating around can be put to rest. Therefore a fair, competent and impartial investigation is the need of the hour. The expected outcome then would be, a measure of justice for the Complainant, who lost his only son”This, the top court says would also ensure “public confidence”, as speculations have been floating around and they can be put to rest with an impartial investigation into the late actor’s death and would result in dissemination of the “real facts through unbiased investigation”.The Supreme Court observations also point to the fact that Rhea Chakraborty herself had called for a CBI investigation and to enunciate an impartial inquiry would also result in justice for the innocents who might be “target of vilification”. “In such backdrop, to ensure public confidence in the investigation and to do complete justice in the matter, this Court considers it appropriate to invoke the powers conferred by Article 142 of the Constitution. As a Court exercising lawful jurisdiction for the assigned roster, no impediment is seen for exercise of plenary power in the present matter” – Supreme CourtInvestigations Cannot Be Transferred Invoking Powers Under Section 406 CrPC: SC [Read Judgment] Note that Rhea’s lawyer, Senior Advocate Shyam Divan had argued that Chakraborty had no qualms with the case being transferred to the CBI but not at the behest of executive orders of Bihar Government. “She loved him” Divan had pointed out, adding that the manner in which Chakraborty was being projected in the media and was being trolled by social media was abhorrent.”For the petitioner too, it will be the desired justice as she herself called for a CBI investigation. The dissemination of the real facts through unbiased investigation would certainly result in justice for the innocents, who might be the target of vilification campaign. Equally importantly, when integrity and credibility of the investigation is discernible, the trust, faith and confidence of the common man in the judicial process will resonate. When truth meets sunshine, justice will not prevail on the living alone but after Life’s fitful fever, now the departed will also sleep well. Satyameva Jayate” – Supreme CourtA Single bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy had reserved orders after hearing Chakraborty, Bihar Government, Maharashtra Government, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) & Rajput’s father on August 11.To ensure “public confidence” in the investigation, SC invokes powers under Art 142 of Constitution to order #CBI enquiry for Sushant Singh case & further orders that any future FIR registered on case will also be investigated by #CBI.#CBIForSSR #SushantSingRajputDeathCase pic.twitter.com/Wkxp2b2sHj— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 19, 2020Rajput, aged 34, was found dead in suburban Bandra in Mumbai on June 14.While Mumbai police was conducting proceedings with respect to unnatural death of the actor, Rajput’s father lodged a complaint at the Rajeev Nagar Police Station in Patna against Chakraborty and five others on July 25. On the same day, the police lodged an FIR for an investigation into offences allegedly committed under Sections 341, 342, 380, 406, 420, 306, 506, and 120(B) of the Indian Penal Code.While Senior Advocate Maninder Singh had argued that Bihar Government had jurisdiction to investigate into the late actor’s death case in view of the FIR registered by his father in Patna and the CrPC, Maharashtra Government, represented by Senior Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi had denied the prevalence of jurisdiction of Bihar in this case. “This case is being sensationalised for political gains” Singhvi had said.Rhea’s lawyer Senior Advocate Shyam Divan had argued that Chakraborty had no qualms with the case being transferred to the CBI but not at the behest of executive orders of Bihar Government. “She loved him” Divan had pointed out, adding that the manner in which Chakraborty was being projected in the media and was being trolled by social media was abhorrent.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had said that the investigation could be transferred to CBI as there was no investigation pending in two states, adding that Maharashtra Police had not even filed an FIR.”Both Maharashtra & Bihar have made the perfect case for transfer to CBI” he said.Senior Advocate Vikas Singh who appeared for Sushant Singh’s kin had urged the top court to hand over the case of the late actors’ death to CBI.Following arguments that lasted over 3 hours, the parties also filed their respective written submissions before the bench.On August 5, when the plea had first come up for hearing before Top Court, the Centre informed had stated that it had accepted the Bihar Government’s recommendation for a CBI probe into the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. The bench had also refused to grant a stay to Chakraborty & had granted 3 days to all parties to file reply and sought an update from State of Maharashtra on the Investigation done by Mumbai Police.The bench had added that allegations levelled against the accused actress were “serious” & that it was pertinent to proceed as per law, regardless of the sensation surrounding this “high profile case””Serious allegations have been levelled against Petitioner. She has applied for transfer of proceedings from Patna to Mumbai. Bihar has entrusted it to CBI. SG Mehta submits that Centre has accepted CBI probe request. Rajput was a talented artist who passed away under unusual circumstances. Now whether there is criminality involved needs to be investigated…now everyone has an opinion about high profile cases but we will proceed as per law.” – Justice Hrishikesh RoyAlso Read: Investigations Cannot Be Transferred Invoking Powers Under Section 406 CrPC: SCNext Storylast_img read more

The theme for this conference is “Law & Justice in Asia”. The virtual conference opened with the welcome address from Prof. Srikrishna Deva Rao (Vice Chancellor of NLU-D) and Associate Prof. Kelry Loi (Co-Director, ASLI), National University of Singapore. The keynote address was delivered by Justice NV Ramana, Supreme Court Judge and Visitor of the University. The Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court, who is also the University’s Chancellor, Justice DN Patel, graced the Conference as a Special Guest. Prof. Srikrishna Deva Rao, in his welcome address stated that “The Asian nations, with their shared historical experiences and similar development trajectories, today face a fundamentally different governance landscape than the other nations in the West. The hope from this Conference is that these distinct experiences and trajectories also enable the members of ASLI to propose Asian legal solutions to these unique Asian challenges”. During his keynote address, Justice Ramana elaborated on the concept of justice as elucidated in the Indian constitution and its pivotal role in state functioning. He also highlighted as to how most of the Asian countries have been facing similar challenges, and the varied experiences in solving these problems can be profitably shared between everyone. He said, “Many of our nations share a colonial past, and have similar tales regarding the imposition of unjust colonial law on our people. However, we must also remember that, a foreign legal system was imposed upon us, along with a set of foreign values and norms. This imposition dwindled the rich heritage, and subdued local customs which had ensured social stability. Traditional values and ideals relating to social and community well-being, which were inherent in our way of life, were foregone. However, justice always requires a tailormade approach and cannot be one-size-fit-all.” He wished for the conference to break barriers, build new friendships and exchange potential solutions saying that “the seeds of new thoughts and ideas will be sown during this conference.” Organised annually by ASLI, the conference provides a platform for legal academics and scholars from ASLI member institutions, as well as from Asia and beyond, to present their research and examine contemporary legal issues of interest to Asian jurisdictions. More than 150 participants attended the Opening of the Conference and a total of 108 papers will be presented over the three days. After three full days of papers and presentations, the conference will come to a close in the morning of 9 November 2020 with a presentation on the 18th ASLI Conference by Prof. Bintan R. Saragih, SH, Dean, Faculty of Law, Universitas Pelita Harapan and Closing Remarks from Prof. Srikrishna Deva Rao and Associate Prof. Kelry Loi. The Conference will cover legal issues related to a wide variety of subjects that include Constitutional and Administrative Law, Environmental Law, Human Rights, Information Technology Law, Corporate Law, Children and Law, Women and Law, among others.
