Union Development & Democracy Officer Blog

Hello! I’m Jack and you elected me to be your Union Development and Democracy Officer. It’s my job to help develop KeeleSU to make sure it’s responding to the needs of students while acting as a voice for Keele students on issues and campaigns they care about in the University, local community and nationally.

I graduated in 2020 with a BA in Politics before being elected as your Union Development and Democracy Officer. As a student, I was a Student Ambassador and Chair of the Young Liberals. In my spare time I also enjoy gaming, watching foreign films and reading sci-fi. My favourite band is Röyksopp.

Talk to me about:

  • Making KeeleSU a more welcoming place for everyone
  • The facilities and services that students need
  • Empowering the student voice

Amy's Union General Meeting (UGM) report

Hate Crime Reporting

On the 22nd January, I attended a Hate Crime Awareness workshop, delivered by Stop Hate UK, who we have a partnership with. This was a really interesting workshop, and allowed me to understand their work some more. I am in the process of creating more campaign awareness of the different ways you can report and the support you get from different services.

Parking

I am in the process of trying to create content that will increase the awareness of permit holder car parks around campus, including Plot 7 and the Golf course.

Voter Registration

Expanding on my last report for the AGM on the 10th December, the General Election has happened, with Polling day happening on the 12th December. On polling day, we had a stand in the Students’ Union with information on voting, and giving free coffee upgrades for those that had voted. I invited a member of staff from NUS to come and help out, along with some of our own student staff. In addition to this stand, we used the whiteboard to capture why people had been voting.
