Hello! I’m Lauren, your Vice President (Student Support), and, along with the other sabbatical officers, I’m here to make sure your experience at the University of Glasgow is the best it can be. My remit covers many things from welfare to organising campaigns to equality and diversity, but at the heart of my job is ensuring that your wellbeing is prioritised by the University and holding them to account when it’s not. I’ve had a busy first semester working on lots of initiatives that will hopefully make a big difference to student welfare here at UofG, so read on to find out more. P.s. if this inspires you to want to get involved in making changes for students our nominations for the Spring Elections open on the 5th of February…!

The ‘Mind Your Mate’ training programme is a 3 hour interactive workshop covering basic mental health awareness and suicide prevention skills. The overall aim of Mind Your Mate is to reduce the barriers preventing people from accessing the help they need, provide participants with the confidence and skills to help someone in crisis and reduce the stigma around discussing mental health and suicide. Mind Your Mate forms part of the SRC’s commitment to increasing opportunities for students to access peer-led early-intervention support and training.
The SRC’s #LecRec campaign is relaunching for Semester 2. This is a priority campaign that with the help of students is encouraging more lecturers to opt in to our current lecture recording policy if staff lecture in a room with lecture recording capability. We are aiming to move towards a policy where all lectures are recorded for all UofG students to make learning more accessible for our 27,000 students.
