SU President Welfare & Inclusivity
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.

23/09/2020 Our Black History Month participation call-out has been shared to all students.
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.
23/09/2020 I met with Sarah Davey (CEO of Students’ Union) and Sophie Harrison (Director of Membership Services) to discuss Covid-19 resources for students, which included the possibility of distributing badges and lanyards to students that needed to visually communicate any extra needs due to the changes on campus, such as lip-reading issues for masks as one example.
I want to highlight different student experiences with a short film series project, acknowledging more diversity for international students and isolated students. this will in turn create collaboration opportunities for societies, to gain their understanding and perspective on these stories.
23/09/2020 I raised this item in a Mature Students Working Group
23/09/2020 Discussed in terms of finances for the upcoming year as well. Plans are being paused due to the uncertainty of Covid-19, but with the hopes of filming it in 2021.
23/09/2020 I attended Campus trials which tested out the one-way systems to ensure that they were suitable before new students arrive due to the new Covid safe one-way systems that have been put in place.
23/09/2020 Although accessibility is good throughout routes, I flagged up that there needed to be clearer signage for accessible routes that are in place to make things as clear as possible.
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.
