Union Development & Democracy Officer Blog

Hello! I’m Holly and you elected me to be your Union Development and Democracy Officer. It’s my job to help develop Keele SU 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 at Keele in 2020 (minus the ceremony) with a BSc in Mathematics. As a student, I played a lot of rugby and unsurprisingly spent a lot of time in the SU and holding student representative roles. Outside of uni, I enjoy playing video games, and telling people I'm vegan.

Talk to me about:

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

My priorities in my new role

Hi everyone, I’m Holly the Union Development and democracy officer of the Students Union, last year I previously held the role of the Athletic Union and Sports Officer. I’m responsible for 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 as well as overseeing our democratic processes of the union (as the role title suggests).

A little bit about me: I graduated at Keele in 2020 (minus the ceremony) with degree in Mathematics. As a student, I played a lot of rugby and unsurprisingly spent a lot of time in the SU and holding student representative roles. I’m really passionate about sustainability, trying to dismantle the patriarchy, and dogs.

My main manifesto priorities this year is for the UDD role to become a front facing role for students again. I want student to inform SU policy and decisions and to especially amplify those voices from liberation groups that tend to go unheard.
I also want to work with the Education officer to pool resources into the national campaign of the fight against the marketisation of education. It is quite clear that this is a sector wide problem so I want to make sure Keele doesn’t fall down this trend as with Keele’s campus community and history of thinking differently, I believe the university should and could be at the forefront of this work.

I’m really looking forward to working this year and welcoming students to a somewhat normal year. Touch wood!
