About my role

I am the figurehead of the Students’ Union, representing you locally, to the university and nationally. I lead the Officer Team, campaign and meet regularly with the University Senior Management Team to ensure students are at the heart of any and all decisions the University make.

Manifesto points

Level 1 in the Library is full of journals that few people use. I’ll make sure they’re put online, freeing up an entire floor for study space

PROGRESS 100%

The introduction of learning commons has been popular; I’ll push for even more, on and off campus so you have space to get your work done.

PROGRESS 50%

Our volunteers should get the recognition they deserve. I’ll ensure the Volunteer Recognition Scheme provides worthy rewards.

PROGRESS 100%

I’ll develop a loyalty scheme and reward cards for using SU services, giving you even more discounts.

PROGRESS 25%

I’ll work with the web team to create a new SU App, keeping you up to date with all the deals, communications and events that are happening - including regular updates from the Officer Team so you know what we’re up to.

PROGRESS 50%

In the summer, puppies and a petting zoo will be coming to help you with stress, but I’ll make stress-free campus even bigger and introduce a huge ball pit and a bouncy castle to let off some steam.

PROGRESS 75%

I’ll continue working to obtain a new system for feedback so you can voice your concerns and have them acted upon now rather than later!

PROGRESS 50%

Students are assessed far too much. I’ll ensure steps are taken to reduce assessment and make sure the way you are assessed is appropriate.

PROGRESS 75%

Media at Bath needs immediate development. I’ll secure the investment they badly need.

PROGRESS 100%

I’ll push for an increased service to areas outside of Oldfield Park such as extended U2 provision until midnight.

PROGRESS 25%

With the University forcing more students to live further outside of Bath, I’ll push for subsidised travel for those having to commute in.

PROGRESS 25%

There are too many forms for student groups dealing with finances. I’ll ensure we get an online SU Finance system that allows student groups to efficiently manage their accounts online and reduce the number of hoops they have to jump through.

PROGRESS 50%

With fees set to increase, it’s time we knew where our fees are going and if we are getting value for our money. I’ll push for transparency in spending from the University and the SU.
