Hello all! I’m James, and I have recently finished my undergraduate degree in Lampeter studying Classical Civilisation. I am your Group President for 2020/21 and I look forward to representing you in this upcoming year. I’m hoping this year TSDSU can engage and work with more students than before, from Lampeter to London and everywhere in between, we’re here for you.
Three big issues I will be campaigning on are mental health, sustainability, and parity of experience.
The climate emergency is an important issue that means a lot to me, and to our members. I hope, with further campaigning, that climate emergency policy will be approved in this coming academic year. This policy will ensure UWTSD is held accountable for their targets laid out in the policy, which include the university being carbon neutral by 2030, the introduction of solar panels on university buildings, and increasing the delivery of environmental and sustainability education across all campuses.
The mental health of students should be a top priority for all Students' Unions and universities. I am hoping TSDSU can secure another successful bid for HEFCW funding allowing us to offer a wide range of informative mental health sessions, and opportunities for students to get out and experience.
I would also like to ensure every student has access to equal and essential facilities, as our satellite campuses lack some of the facilities that our physical campuses have to offer, such as a library and a physical SU presence.
