Student Trustee Candidate 17-18
Hi! I’m Eric, currently an Ordinary Member of the Union Council , and I’m running for the role of Student Trustee. In my three years at Council, which is the governance level below the trustee board, I’ve tried my best to voice your concerns and to lobby for change. From opposing the closure of the Weeks Hall accommodation at Prince's Garden, to suggesting the extension of student loans, and to promoting the “re-boot” of Evelyn Gardens as a student hall (instead of leaving it defunct) for non-first-years, I’ve been working hard to improve imperial’s university experience.
Recently, I’ve looked into how difficult it is to get appointments from Career Services during peak season, which I’m sure some of you may relate to. Thanks to the feedback I gathered from you all, I was able to pass a paper addressing the issue through council.
Along with my experience at various college-wide committees, e.g. the Health and Safety Committee and Discipline Committee, I hope to convince you that I have the experience and heart to represent you at the trustee board.
If elected, I would continue to reach out to more of you, and make sure that your voices are heard. If there's any college matters that you believe are unjust or should be changed, I would be more than willing to take emails or messages, and to express your concerns on behalf of you.
Dedicated, motivated and approachable, I genuinely hope that I could have your vote as student trustee this year!
