CSteeghsSocSciConvenerHello! I’m Cathy Steeghs, a third year History/Politics student hoping to be your SRC Social Sciences Convener.

I’ve been a council member for the past two years; first as International Students Officer and currently as the Social and Political Sciences School rep. During my time on council I’ve sat on university-wide bodies including Senate and Learning/Teaching Committee. At university I’ve engaged thoroughly with student life, through involvement with activities such as debating and IEFS I feel I can confidently communicate students’ interests.

As a School Rep, I’ve helped coordinate the organisation of feedback and develop course feedback mechanisms at all levels. I’ve taken the initiative to increase awareness of alternative study spaces outwith the library, I hope to expand this to Social Sciences focused ‘pop-up’ spaces.

Aims:

  • Promote good practice across the college of increasing availability of online resources
  • Continue to actively oppose the threatened University ban on translation dictionaries in exams
  • Advocate for more detail and transparency in marking criteria across the college
  • Ensure the collaboration of class reps and school reps. Together they make the most direct feedback for representation
  • Coordinate regular, college-wide drop-in sessions for any help and advice you need.
