Manifesto Points

Communication

I understand that communication is imperative to this role, I will be the conduit between students and staff and ensure an efficient welfare and diversity network. I will guarantee that issues are presented clearly and received by the appropriate parties to ensure all matters are addressed and provided with feedback.

 

Advocacy

Educating not only others, but yourself plays a crucial part in the demand for change. I feel the training of staff and students alike is vital in providing an inclusive working environment in which individuals feel valued. Advocacy of all marginalized groups throughout the university is essential for spearheading appreciation and acceptance.

 

Mental health support

A strong support system underpins an effective and integrated community. I want students to be able to express their concerns as comfortably as possible. Whether this be anonymously, through your chosen course representatives or directly to the Student’s Union, I want to assure students are being listened to.
