The University of Manchester is one of the most important institutions of our city. You, as students, constitute the life blood of the University. You live throughout the Manchester Community, and so make up a crucial part of the city and its culture. It is my pleasure to represent you within these communities and continue the great work of previous Community Officers and more broadly, the Students' Union.
I have been involved with the Students' Union since day one of University and since then have fallen in love with the Union. After being on the RAG committee I have had an incredible time organising and supporting student led community projects in Manchester. I will use this experience to support you in the Manchester community and also increase engagement between you, as students, and residents in your area.
How the Students' Union is the centre of gravity in the University for so many students and its potential to be this important for all students. How the Students' Union provides a platform for students to challenge the status quo. How the Students' Union offers opportunities that may never have been provided by the University, allowing Students to create and run events and societies. How the Students' Union, through us as the Exec team and other essential members of staff, are here to protect your interests.
