In my time at the university I’ve been active in several campaigns and societies, among them Politics Society, Law Society and recently, Amnesty International. My activity has been aimed at promoting a climate of equality and cooperation among all sectors of our university community. The Race Equality Officer role seems an appropriate progression for me, as I am passionate about creating an environment where all students are on an equal footing regardless of ethnic or background.

I’m in my 4th year of Law and feel that if elected, I’d be able to use the skills and ideas I have learnt to proactively represent any race related issues that may arise on Campus.
If elected, I will:

  • Raise the visibility of the role to ensure that there is a face and a place to take issues to
  • Hold and publicise a fortnightly surgery where students can raise concerns
  • Work with societies and students of all racial and cultural backgrounds to promote integration
  • Speak up against any instances of racial discrimination
  • Support societies such as Amnesty and the Scottish Refugee Council in their work on Campus

Hope I have your vote!

Peter Adolphus

My name is Peter Ngeri Adolphus, a post graduate student of the University of Glasgow. I am a Nigerian, and I was admitted in the 2013-2014 academic session to study Economic Development at the College of Social Science.

Currently, I am a member of the Glasgow University Trade and Investment Club (GUTIC). It is important to mention that I progressed from Glasgow International College (GIC) where I studied Business, Law, and Social Science (Pre-Masters). While there, I served as a student representative in the College Management Board throughout the period I was there. I was also an executive committee member of the Students Forum. Apart from that, I worked closely with Rev. Francis Alao, who was the Racial Justice Offer for Scotland until recently. With these experiences, I am confident that I can discharge the responsibility of a Race Equality Officer in a manner that my performance will not fall short of students’ expectation.

Given the diverse nature of students’ population within University of Glasgow, there is always the tendency for students to often times misinterpret actions of others. As a Race Equality Officer, part of my duties will be to promote good relations and practices towards different minority groups.
