2019-20 Achievements

 

Improve Space on Our Campus

 

  • Ensured that the student voice was in the campus development through consultation with students such as focus groups and surveys.
  • Worked with Joe Rigby (President Exeter 2019/20) to establish better links with Truro - this year we have seen more representation from Truro and a host of new Truro-based societies.

 

Making Campus Cleaner & Greener

 

  • Working with the Green Committee, there has been ongoing work in this area. In November there was a collaborative campus-wide sustainability week, involving the local community, student groups and campus services. (which we won a national award for!)
  • Other green projects in process that I have collaborated with students on – Edible pathways: more edible plants on campus.
  • Bee bombs (campaign created and funding secured by Elisabeth Streeter (Environment and Ethics Officer 2018/19) were distributed to students and areas set aside for wildflowers by the gardening team.
  • ‘Don’t be a mug’ - A project promoting less disposable takeaway cups on Falmouth campus.

 

Better Campus Events

 

  • Supported CSM in their Movember mop chop!
  • Supported CSM in the organisation of Bottle Match and the after party, which was attended by over 400 attendees.
  • RAD-organised Take Me Out was a great success, with over 400 attendees.
  • Slip N Slide was a great success again in 2019 and was set to be bigger and better for 2020. That idea is still in place and will happen in the future.
  • Worked with Callie Edwards (President Falmouth 2019/20) to ensure that the student voice was included in the organisation of campus events, bringing back Grad Ball for 2020 (postponed due to COVID-19)

 

Improve Student Opportunities

 

  • Created the Legends platform (developed form V-team) which has resulted in an increase of volunteer hours logged.
  • There has been on-going work to reduce processes and make running student groups easier.
  • Supported Joe Rigby (President Exeter 2019/20) to lobby Exeter University for funding for better pitch provision on campus.
  • There has been an increase in academic societies.

 

Increase Student Voice in Accomodation

 

  • Supported Harry Bishop (Welfare and Inclusivity President 2017/19) in the implementation of ResLife. This aims to give support to those living in residence and a direct line of communication to the relevant support avenues. There is still work to be done here but the feedback loop is much better than it has been.
