The Student Rep Scheme has already kicked off into the 2016/17 year with a massively successful election held at the end of September – there was a record number of candidates and a huge 1324 students cast votes!
To welcome our newly-elected Reps an action-packed training session was organised by the Students’ Union, led by a couple of our Full-Time Officers. The welcome event covered a huge range of things from NUS Liberation training, a talk and Q&A with the new Vice Chancellor, Adam Tickell, to a workshop on our very important I Heart Consent campaign.
Our Education Officers were particularly impressed with the calibre of this year’s Reps:
Savannah, Undergraduate Education Officer:
The welcome event was very inspiring - there are so many brilliant Student Reps who have sharp ideas for change and they want to see it happen. I think, judging from the depth of conversations I had, that we are going to see some real change at Sussex through the Reps and I encourage them to keep their dreams big.
Rose, Postgraduate Education Officer:
It was so great to see so many enthusiastic students who want to make positive change at Sussex. We have a great group of campaigners and representatives this year, who I'm sure are going to do loads of great work around liberation, timetabling, decolonising and lots of other exciting things.
The training workshops were rounded off with a social with pizza, giving the Reps to chat and share ideas with one another.
The Student Reps are there to help with any issues affecting students’ studies or experience, so please get in touch with your rep if you have anything to discuss. You can find your current rep on Study Direct or contact your school office.
