SU President Welfare & Inclusivity Charlotte Agnew

 

SU President Welfare & Inclusivity

Hello!

I’m Charlotte Agnew and I am your President Welfare & Inclusivity. My main role is to bring the voices of students to the foreground in topics surrounding your welfare, as well as making sure that every student feels included during their time at university.

I will be representing students from both Falmouth University and the University of Exeter's Cornwall Campuses, being sure to fully support in areas that are outside of your academic studies. These areas include mental wellbeing, welfare, accessibility, inclusivity, and diversity. I cannot wait to work closely with the student communities to help raise awareness on important topics, develop and execute campaigns, and help to support and enhance student welfare services.

Roles and responsibilities

  • Community & welfare representation
  • Liberation and faith
  • Accessibility
  • Equality & diversity
  • TOWN & GOWN
  • Widening student participation
  • Local community
  • Private housing and quality accommodation
  • Elections
  • Health, happiness, and wellbeing
  • Sexual, mental and physical health
  • Disability and specific learning differences
  • Fighting hate crime & supporting students
  • Liaising with student support services, living support, the police, multifaith chaplaincy and the FXU Advice Service
  • Accommodation - covering university owned and managed accommodation and including ResLife

I'll be updating you throughout the year on the work I'm doing.

 

Top Priorities


I will be working closely with living support and wellbeing support, both of which are under FXPlus, to help find alternative ways to make the forms easier to fill out.

Planning important cultural dates such as Black History Month as well as international food weeks that highlight and celebrate key religious holidays. I will be working closely with empowering the Liberation committee, activity groups as well as students to help lead on these.

Due to the need for wearing masks and social distancing in light of Covid-19, I want to make sure that important resources are distributed to students to improve accessibility in communication. These include badges for those who rely on lip-reading or are feeling anxious, as well as apps such as live subtitling to make communication easier.

Other Priorities


Highlighting different student experiences with a short film series project, acknowledging more diversity for international students and isolated students. Creating collaboration opportunities for societies, to gain their understanding and perspective on these stories.

Make sure that subtitles for online content is mandatory as part of the Quality Impacts Assessments.

Finalise Cornwall Speaks Out which is a joint Falmouth/Exeter hate crime reporting tool. This continues the work that Allie Guy (Previous President Welfare & Inclusivity) has done, which replaces the existing Tell Me tool.

Look into improving routes around campus, to ensure that all routes are accessible via wheelchair ad other accessible needs.

Look into creating a new widget on the Falmouth + Exeter App which allows easier access to useful resources. These will be both for students looking for new accommodation and for those moving out of university accommodation, such as halls.

Update the communication between students and academic staff to make sure that people’ ILPs are updated and checked more regularly for an improved and more accessible teaching experience.
Look into the funding of mental health services for university students and help find alternative resources to help alleviate waiting times for living and wellbeing support.
