Hey everyone, my name is Mari 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’m a single honours Sociology graduate though I started my journey at Keele on a social sciences foundation year. During my time at Keele I have been a Student Voice Representative for three years, a Lead Voice Representative for two years and have also been involved in a number of academic societies, though in my spare time I love video games and gardening. My favourite band is Fall Out Boy (sorry)!

Talk to me about:

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

Mari's new UGM report

Hi guys, here are my UGM updates from the UGM held on the 3rd of February 2020 :)

Computing Skills for all Courses.
At the UGM on the 3rd of February, the Students’ Union were mandated to “lobby the university to provide computing courses for all students”. Specifically, “these should be made credited for students to take as electives, or on top of their course where no free electives are available”, and they “should be made freely available to all students”.

To explore the possibility of this, I will be meeting with the director of KIITE Rafe Hallet, the Learning Technology Manager Matt Street, and Learning Technologist Karl Gimblett later this week and I hope to get a more substantial update to you all as soon as possible afterwards.
