Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll... isn't necessarily the focus of a trustee. However, ensuring fellow students get the most out of their student union, and that their student union remains relevant is! Having been Treasurer of Wantage JCR this past year, I understand the need to get the most out of not very much, but I also understand the good that comes when services and support are provided well. It's not much to ask for a well-run Student Union, but having peered behind the curtains, it takes a lot to do; ensuring RUSU is well staffed is a top priority so everyone can benefit from what is a fantastic resource. I also want to see RUSU being more proactive in making a difference across campus, because when RUSU puts its' mind to it, it can achieve brilliant things. Finally, I want to see better funding for JCRs, the coalface of where RUSU meets students, ensuring these bodies can carry out their work independently of RUSU and run as many activities as they can. I hope to win your support and become a Student Trustee.
- Strengthen the governance of RUSU further to ensure value for students
- Push for investment in JCRs
- Ensure further work is made by RUSU in support services
