Cecil Rhodes: Campaigner discusses statue in 2020
More than 150 Oxford academics are protesting against Oriel College’s decision to keep the statue of the imperialist.The college was accused of “institutional racism” last month after its governing body announced it would not move the statue of Mr Rhodes from outside the building.
The academics said they will boycott tutorials to Oriel’s undergraduate students and will not take part in any outreach and access working including interviewing undergraduates.
Lord Wharton, the chairman of the Office for Students, criticised the boycott аs “utterly unаcceptаble” if it cаused аny current or prospective students to be “disаdvаntаged in аny wаy”, the Telegrаph reports.
