The Wikipedia page for Sussex University has been edited to more accurately reflect the current situation of the university. Under the ‘finance’ section the entry now reads:
In 2009 the University had an annual turnover of £160 million but announced that it had to make cuts of £3 million in the current academic year and £5 million in 2010-11 due to reductions in government funding. 
The proposal for the cuts includes over 115 compulsory redundancies. These include a third of the academics in the School of Life Sciences, 13 academics in Informatics, and more redundancies in the schools of Engineering, History, English and the Centre for Continuing Education.
The plans also includes reductions in funding and reorganising of many of the universities non-academic services.
A strong student and staff movement, “Stop the Cuts”, was set up to oppose the proposals, demanding that the university management:
* Abolish all plans for compulsory redundancies
* Resist Tuition fees and reductions in higher education funding
* Reduce executive pay
* Postpone new building projects
* Give assurances of academic freedom
The “Stop the Cuts campaign” has organised several protests, most recently, bringing together more than 500 students, to coincide with a Senate meeting. The Vice Chancellor, Michael Farthing, called the police to disperse the demonstration, despite the nonviolent nature of the protest.
