My UGM Report - A busy month!

Hey hey! This month has been extremely busy for me with furlough, annual leave and the elections (thanks again to everyone who voted and supported me). So here are my updates on what I’ve been working on in-between:

Meetings

03/02/21 Engagement Monitoring Meeting- As part of the University’s Start to Success project to support mental health and wellbeing of students, the university are piloting engagement software that monitors students’ engagement across a variety of media. This meeting was to introduce how the dashboard would work and a chance for us to raise any questions. If you would like to hear more about how this software will be used, please feel free to get in contact with me.
02/03/21 Sport Roadmap- Steps are being taken towards re-opening of the sports centre and club training. A roadmap has been produced in-line with the government COVID roadmap and I hope to give you updates on this when appropriate to.
08/03/21 Graduation Student Comms- Discussions were held about the preferences with 2020 and 2021 student cohort on the options for Graduation activity. The university are looking to gather student feedback for next steps. So third years, keep your eyes peeled for more comms about this!

General Updates

Carbon Emissions on Menu Items - Not much to be update you on with this. Now I’m getting back into the swing of things, I hope to make significant progress and have something by Easter.
AU Membership Review - We’re in the middle of gathering feedback of current sport models in place at other SUs that are similar to the Keele structure. We also will be asking for student consultations in the next coming weeks via focus groups, surveys etc. If you are interested in being included, please contact me or the AU.
AU Refunds - By now, you should have received you AU membership refund for anyone who purchased them. If there are still any problems, please email su.athleticunion@keele.ac.uk.
Fitness February - Last month the AU have gathered support from sport clubs to either host a live session or to create a video of a workout every day of February. These workouts were to be sport-specific or just general fitness class and can range in difficulty and is open to all staff and students. The videos have been uploaded to the Facebook page so that they can be accessed anytime: https://www.facebook.com/keelefitnessfeb. Fitness February’s aim was to get students and staff moving and hopefully improve their mental health. Thank you to everyone involved and thank you to the AU committee for all the hard work put into it!
