Manifesto Points

A Warm Welcome for ALL

  • Every student deserves to feel at home at UoG. I stand for inclusion, welcome and equity in all elements of educational experience.
  • Host fortnightly ‘Tea with Me’ to improve educational community.
  • Promote and improve UoG’s efforts to decolonise the curriculum.
  • Develop friendly and sustainable integration strategies for international students.

Volunteering that kicks down doors!

  • I want every student to benefit from volunteering opportunities that don’t just open doors to your chosen career, they kick them down and help you make an entrance!
  • Set up a thriving Volunteer Hub.
  • Initiate a “Not Alone” Campaign to boost the role of volunteering as a way to combat student isolation and loneliness.
  • Take the lead from students and academics to find meaningful experiences for all student groups, including under-represented communities.

Expert Academic Support for ALL Students

Every academic journey has its twists and turns, but I want to reinstate excellent, expert academic support for when we hit the bumps!

  • Build on current efforts to reinstate an Academic Advice Team
  • Hold focus-groups with networks of students to influence best practice and relevant support they want to see in this service.
  • Improve transparency of academic guidelines to ensure all students can achieve their best.
