Hi! I’m Becky, your Democracy and Development Officer.
I’m responsible for running All Student Meetings, Autumn Elections and Officer Elections. I am looking forward to exploring different methods of widening participation with SU democracy – in particular, I’m keen to make SU democracy seem less bureaucratic
(read: boring!) and more accessible or appealing to a wider range of students.
The development side of role concerns the SU outlets (The Terrace Bar, The Bread Oven, Curiositea, Xananas, The Dirty Duck and The Copper Rooms) and making sure they are run in the interests of students. One of my priorities this year will be looking
to establish a Warwick Foodbank to tackle the massive food waste issue we have on campus.
Finally, I know not everyone is as enthralled by quorums and procedural motions as some of us democracy-loving SU types - I’m also aware that the acronyms and confusing titles sometimes make getting involved feel like learning a new language, but
it’s actually really simple and you shouldn’t feel daunted. My door is always open to anyone who wants to know a bit more about the enigma that is the SU and how to get involved!
