Cathy SteeghsHello! I’m Cathy Steeghs, a second year History and Politics student running to be your School representative.

As the Campaigns Coordinator for the GU chapter of UNICEF and member of the Dialectic, Isabella Elder Feminist and Politics Societies, I’m highly engaged in University life. I’m used to working with a diverse range of students and hosting events that cater to students’ needs and interests.

Being a current SRC member as well as sitting on University Senate, the largest University governing body, I already have the insight and experience of working within the frameworks of both the SRC and University management.

If elected, I would aim to:

  • Promote the usage and further development of the Adam Smith Library as a resource for Social & Political Sciences students.
  • Improve the cohesion and cooperation between the SRC and class reps. A direct link and feedback channel needs to be forged to ensure students feel they are meaningfully represented.
  • Spread successful practices across the school. Increasingly readings are being digitized, lecture recordings are available and exam feedback is offered- I would keep this up and ensure all subjects are using these practices.

Vote Cathy as your #1 Social and Political Sciences Rep!
