Hi! I’m Madi, your Students' Union President! My job is to serve as the outward face of the SU and represent students from our 10,000+ strong diverse and vibrant community, ensuring that the University always acts in your best interests.
My priorities for this year are:
- Mental health training for personal tutors and more 1-2-1 professional counselling drop-in sessions, as well as lobbying for more staff within the department
- Having a counsellor drop-in day at Pittville Student Campus
- I also aim to improve the help for students transitioning from school to university, so that living away from home for the first time, and getting to grips with more independent study, isn’t quite so troubling. This can be done by developing a buddy system or a mentoring scheme.
- I would like to enhance the networking opportunities that are available. We need to develop better industry connections and establish stronger relationships with working professionals to provide you with the connections and mentors you need to inspire future job opportunities
Aside from these main points, I also endeavour to listen to your opinions and the changes you would like to see! After all, making a positive difference to your university experience is why I became the president of the Students' Union. If you every want to have a chat, just drop me an email. Thank you!
