How it’s going? This year I’ll be looking into areas such as housing, environment, catering, transport, health and well-being as well as students’ place in the wider community.

 

  • Residential Life – to be at the heart of issues facing students living on or around campus, in private halls or in their own homes.
  • Respect – Top lead on various events and activities throughout the year which will raise awareness of showing consideration or thoughtfulness to our inclusive student community
  • Increase involvement in organised activity through our SU, promoting societies, volunteering events and services
  • Safer campus – to help increase students feelings of wellbeing and safety
  • To understand the issues and needs of students’ in the Faculty of Arts (FoA) ensuring that these are communicated and actioned with faculty staff
  • To undertake monthly drop in surgeries for students’ living in University accommodation ensuring any issues are brought back to the University.
  • November update - Drop-in sessions have been and are taking place and the first halls provider meeting went very well
    • To lead on various events and activities throughout the year which will raise awareness of showing consideration or thoughtfulness to our inclusive student community;
    • November Update - Respect Campaign has been launched with over 100 signatures from our University Community on the banner. The Road Safety Week campaign has gone well with the Smombie takeover, thank you to the students who contributed. Currently we are compiling data regarding the usage of the walking bus along with the Harrison Learning Centre.
    • Increased involvement in organised activity through the SU, promoting societies, volunteering events and services
    • November update - Currently I have been busy with the new societies and ratifying existing societies. Whilst we are without a societies coordinator in the interim I have been supporting the societies drop ins.
    • To help increase students feelings of wellbeing and safety
    • November update - I have been working closely with the Health and Wellbeing Coordinator to support her in the initiatives
    • To understand the issues and needs of students in the Faculty of Arts (FoA) ensuring that these are communicated and actioned with faculty staff;
