Dr. Richa Dwor's short term contract with the University of Leicester comes to an end with this academic year and it is not being extended (or changed to a permanent one). I believe that this has to change and have started this petition to urge the English faculty to reconsider this decision.
Universities have changed with the dramatic rise in the cost of higher education, and students paying the higher fees demand more from their university. This means that more focus needs to be given to the teaching side of an academic's career as students become paying customers of a multi-million pound business. So when a lecturer is genuinely enthusiast and makes students look forward to lectures, this should be encouraged and emulated. Dr. Dwor is one of these lecturers whose enthusiasm has been unceasing throughout my degree (from EN1010 to the dissertation lecture). A lecturer who is both passionate and knowledgable, and who inspires students to be equally passionate.
Please see sense and keep one of the best assets that the English department have at the University of Leicester so she can continue to inspire success.
