Candidate for the position of Chair of Student Council
I successfully organized this year’s AGM as part of the Democracy and Engagement Committee. This was a very rewarding experience as we introduced electronic voting procedure and a Q&A desk for student’s to ask about democratic procedures for the first time. I feel I have experience and would be well suited to this position with your best interests at heart. Year on year students are becoming less apathetic as they see the impact they can make on the student landscape. I hope to increase student numbers and use larger venues such as the Physics Lecture theatre to accommodate more students. I support shorter e-mails and more reminders for students before important meetings. I re-affirm my commitment to the Safe Space declaration and believe any action which disturbs the peace of student meeting’s should be taken very seriously. I also believe the university should provide follow-up reports on Student Decisions and where possible provide proof they have investigated the feasibility of all student motions .Please remember you have 1001 reasons to vote for Sheherazade and I rely on your vote online during election week beginning Monday 12th March to make our voice heard.
See you at the polls!
