Dear University of Lincoln,

I was very worried to hear of a recent study that claimed that there was a 19% rise in EU academics leaving UK universities over the past year.

May I submit an FOI request concerning Lincoln's overall levels of EU academic staff? In particular I would like to know how many EU academic staff have left the university over the last year and how many new EU staff have joined you since. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,
Matthew Taylor

Dear Matthew,
 
Thank you for your request for information.  In order to provide the best
possible answer for you, may I kindly ask you to clarify the request:
 
“May I submit an FOI request concerning Lincoln's overall levels of EU
academic staff? In particular I would like to know how many EU academic
staff have left the university over the last year and how many new EU
staff have joined you since. Any help with this would be greatly
appreciated.”
 
Could you please clarify:
 

 1. Would you like to know the overall number of EU academic staff
currently employed within the University?       
 2. Where you state ‘left the University’, what reason for leaving would
you like us to provide information for (e.g.
resignation/retirement/termination etc)?
 3. The timeframe for ‘joined you since’.  Do you mean EU academic staff
who joined within the timeframe of the first question (January
2017-January 2018)?

 
Until we receive clarification the University will consider your request
to be suspended.  The timescales for response will commence when we
receive clarification.  If we do not hear from you within one month of the
date of this email we will assume that you no longer wish to pursue your
request and the University will not take any further action. In the
meantime, if you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact
me by telephone or by email.
 
Kind regards,
 
Justin

Dear Justin,

Many thanks for your reply. I am very happy to clarify these points.

1) Yes, I would be interested in the overall numbers of EU academic staff employed by the university.

2) I am primarily interested in the numbers of EU staff who have resigned. Is it possible to provide the resignation figure as well as the overall number of those leaving for context?

3) That time frame would be excellent.

If you need any more clarifications, please let me know.

Kind regards,
Matthew Taylor
