Hi, my name is Rebecca, and I am running for the role of Carmarthen Campus President. If I was to be elected, I have three main points which also have subcategories within them.
For more details on my points as well as my campaign you can find my page on Facebook (vote Rebecca for Carmarthen president 2021/2022) and you can also email me at email@example.com.
As set out in my manifesto my main priorities are mental health and well-being, accessibility and inclusivity as well as the non-academic activities. For mental health and wellbeing, I want to work towards a more round the clock service and collaborative work with local agencies and charities. Accessibility and inclusivity cover everything from access needs to additional support from student services either on an interim or long-term basis. Non-academic activities would be tailored to suit everyone from residential to non-residential students and alcoholic to non-alcoholic. I want to ensure also students know that I am approachable regardless of their residential status the union is for everyone that’s a student at UWTSD.
From my previous experience of being on campus for my undergraduate degree and now a masters I have lived experience of the previous presidents and the vice presidents that we also had. From this I have learnt that part of this role you need to be welcoming where students are comfortable with approaching you for whatever reason. I will ensure that the student body know where they can find me and when but also my work details in case, they prefer virtual communication.
I will represent the student body by having an open-door policy. This means that when I am working in the office any issues can be brought to me. I would also be willing to raise issues with relevant staff when necessary. I would also try and meet the needs of all students including those that may not speak English like myself as a first language.
I would say the biggest issue that has influenced Carmarthen students regardless of their residential status would be clarity on the rules. By this I mean for example we have the current pandemic and there have been some students who have been told some information regarding their university life and then others have been informed differently which at times can be contradicting the first lot of information.
