Another senior figure quits the Cass

Helen Mallinson
  • Comment

Helen Mallinson, director of Cass Culture, has resigned from her position at the Cass following the departure of Robert Mull

Mallinson’s decision to quit follows the resignation of head of school Mull, who resigned from all of his roles at the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art on Friday in the latest twist in the school’s proposed move from its Aldgate base.

Mallinson, who had been at London Metropolitan University for 30 years spending seven of those as head of the school of architecture, said her resignation was in support of Mull.

Mull was suspended from his position as dean at the beginning of the month because of his opposition to London Metropolitan University’s decision to consolidate all of its operations at its Holloway Road campus in north London.

It is understood Mull refused to support London Metropolitan University’s planned sale and relocation of the east London building, which is expected to reap the school £50 million.

The move has prompted protests from staff and students and a petition, already signed by more than 2,700 people.

The campaign to prevent the move has been backed by David Chipperfield, Richard Rogers, Peter St John and Iwona Blazwick, director of the Whitechapel Art Gallery.
