DEO PictureHi, I’m Lauren “Shoogle” McDougall and I’m a mature student studying Scottish Literature.

I’m currently a student representative on the University’s Disability Equality Group which has given me crucial experience in representing disabled students and highlighting their needs at the highest levels, experience I will bring to the role of DEO. In my previous role as GULGBTQ+ President I was responsible for the welfare of a large membership giving me essential skills in sensitively handling individual issues and lobbying for a diverse range of needs. My experience makes me the ideal choice to represent you.

Elect me your Disability Equality Officer and I will:

  • Push to implement a university-wide academic extension policy to ensure that all students with disabilities are treated fairly across all the schools and colleges.
  • Promote the new Disabled Students’ Network.
  • Press for wider staff training in supporting students with disabilities.
  • Ensure that the needs of disabled students are considered at every stage of the new campus development.
  • Continue the campaign for awareness of what the umbrella term “disability” means to ensure that every student gets the support they need.

For a hard-working and experienced voice vote Lauren Shoogle McDougall #1 for Disability Equality Officer.
