SRC Election PhotoHey everyone.
I’m Ruth, an Equality and Human Rights MRes student in my fifth year at Glasgow.
Previously, I have been involved in many social and academic aspects of student life here – for example, I was President of GU Amnesty International and I worked with teaching staff on faculty-student partnerships to improve students’ input to teaching methods.
Having used the SRC to take on campaigns started by myself and other students, I have seen how influential the Council can be in changing how the University meets students’ needs. Now I want to be the person who is responsible for doing exactly that.
If elected, I will:
• Establish regular PGT student forums at the Gilchrist Postgraduate Club so that students from all Colleges can share their views – whilst drinking the best coffee on campus.
• Actively seek recommendations from students for improvements to PG services and suggestions for new services.
• Communicate with PGT students so that they know exactly what I am doing and how they can get involved.
• Provide support for all matters including academic, social, welfare, and the needs of international students.
• Meet with individuals and attend meetings with class representatives as well as other SRC PG representatives.
