|Title:||Challenging the Common Room Rules in the 1980s||Authors:||Lynch, Kathleen||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/11567||Date:||12-Nov-2019||Online since:||2020-09-15T13:35:30Z||Abstract:||This chapter tells the story of how the UCD Common Rules were changed in the late 1980s to allow all UCD staff members to join, regardless of their occupation. As membership had been confined to academics and senior administrative staff, this was a significant achievement. After much debate and many meetings from 1985-87, the decision to democratise the Common Room was made at an AGM on March 12th 1987. The meeting was attended by 100 members of whom 77 voted to make to open up the Common Room.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||UCD Press||Start page:||17||End page:||20||Keywords:||University College Dublin; UCD Common Room Club; Equality; University politics||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Brady J., Marx W.
