Criticism of Glasgow Uni Rocks Equality World

19/05/2021

“An Ancient Institution, Stuck In the Past and Not wanting to change”.  That’s how Glasgow University has been described by some disability activists after an Ombudsmen upheld numerous complaints of failure to conform to the Equalities Act of 2010 by making reasonable adjustments for a disabled student studying law.  The University, which is considered an equivalent to Oxford or Cambridge in England, is prestigious, but its critics say that it is upper class and out of touch.  Gary Copland documented a litany of failures to abide by reasonable adjustment rules.  The Disability News service says that nine findings by the Ombudsmen have been made against the institution, with another eleven currently pending. Mr Copland told the news agency:  ““It has been a very, very difficult, stressful experience. It has been completely unbearable.”.
