Work towards passing a new Union Policy outlining a clear accessibility statement to all students in Autumn Semester. This will make events more inclusive through by increasing safety and accessibility through our branding guidelines at all events.
Culturally Diverse Policy
Work towards passing a new Union Policy in Autumn Semester, identifying our union as being Culturally Diverse. This will ensure different religious and cultural events are treated equitably with regards to promotion and celebration. For example, this would include not prioritizing Christmas or Easter over the religious holidays of other groups via central communication.
Student Group Review
Work to complete a review of current student groups with staff to identify issues that students are facing by January 2021. This feedback would go into the creation of new proposals that should improve SU systems. This should also increase support available to students by making resources specifically tailored to all types of student groups. This will be measured through seeing an increase in positive feedback (+5%) in how supported the student groups feel between the first and the final Societies (to be Activities) council.
Increase overall student understanding
Through new, student led initiatives, different engaging platforms (i.e virtual platforms) and means of communications I will increase students’ overall understanding of the Student’s Union and improve their engagement with it by June 2021. This will be measured by the overall increased involvement in student groups and number of students voting in elections increasing by 5%.
Termly Campus Uniting Events
Hold termly events, including networking opportunities and developmental events like training and drop in sessions as well as regular meetings with the ARBs’ committees to unite different university campuses throughout the year. Measure via improved qualitative feedback (positive comments) from the ARBs’ current committees in comparison to their expectations from the handover.
