Hey everyone, my name is Jack and I am your elected Education Officer for this year. My role is to support your studies and ensure that you get the most out of your experience at Keele. I am responsible for a number of projects including Student Voice Representatives, whereby your opinions can be acted on at both a course and school level. My role also includes making sure that your voice is heard and acted on, as well as providing change to university processes including Exceptional Circumstances.

I studied psychology at Keele before being elected. As a student I got involved in a lot of societies, volunteering opportunities, and as a student voice representative. Outside of my degree I enjoy playing video games, and watching horribly scripted reality TV.

Talk to me about:

  • Become a Student Voice rep
  • Issues on your course of study
  • Accessibility of resources

Mari's AGM report

 

Hi everyone! Here are my UGM motion updates :)

Printing on Campus Update:
As mandated, I have discussed the plausibility of installing printers in campus accomodation common areas with some senior staff and there were mixed opinions on the matter. Staff generally agreed that this would be more convenient for students, however they also felt as though in the long term this motion contradicted Keele’s commitment to sustainability and logistically could become difficult to manage. I will continue to look into this and provide further updates when possible.

10am Submission Deadlines Update:
I highlighted issues with the newly standardised 10am submissions deadline at Education Leadership Group on November the 12th, and it was agreed by the committee that this deadline could be moved for the next academic year (2020/21) if there were sound academic reasons to do so. After Semester 1 has concluded, the Head of Academic Quality and Student Conduct, the Quality Assurance Support Officer and the Education Officer will review the effects of the 10am submission deadline, and investigate the plausibility of moving this deadline to “no earlier than 12PM” for the next academic year. This issue was also raised again at Senate on the 4th of December and commitment to the investigation and willingness to move the deadline was restated.
