As my term in office comes to an end this month, here is my last monthly review. I hope you have enjoyed these monthly updates as I shared this journey with you.
This month, the festival of learning toolkit was launched, and I had the privilege and honour of speaking on the importance of utilising this toolkit whilst working to narrow the attainment gap. You can find this video here.
This week, I had the honour of presenting an award to one of the students experience award winners. Many congratulations to all the nominees and winners, very well deserved.
You can also find my separate update on our Black Lives Matter Campaign and the work done so far here.
Many congratulations to all class of 2020! Sadly, we couldn’t have the graduation we wished for this summer, but I am so incredibly proud of you all, you have come a long way and have achieved so much, particularly during this unprecedented times.
You deserve to be celebrated, and your hard work is not going unnoticed as I have been in discussions with the University over the past few months, for a potential virtual graduation ceremony or congratulatory messages. However, that discussion is still ongoing and will be finalised by the University in due course.
Finally, I attended my last meetings for the following groups: Financial support working group; Curriculum, pedagogy and culture co-creation space, Board of Trustees and UWE vs SU partnership board. I have had such a great time working with the best team and colleagues within The Students’ Union and The University of the West of England.
Coming soon will be a final update from me and that is a year review!
