CHLOE 4 EDUCATION: MANIFESTO!

Hi! I’m Chloe and I’m running to be your next Education Officer!

I’m a 3rd year English Literature student and current member of the SU’s Education Exec and Warwick Anti-Racism Society’s exec. During my time at Warwick, I have always been involved in projects that centre and campaign for student voices, not only to support our educational experiences, but to develop the education system itself.

As your Education Officer I will fight for our educational experience to be improved at all levels - from better wellbeing services, to more accessible study space, to more comprehensive financial support, and a safe and liberated campus.

Whole university? Our university!

QUALITY + ACCESSIBLE EDUCATION: better resources to enhance learning

  • more and better study space to match the increasing student population such as departmental common rooms in all departments and more study space in Leamington Spa

  • earlier exam timetable release

  • an improved feedback system between students, academic departments and the university

FREE EDUCATION: cut costs and fees

I will lobby against

  • printing costs, library fines and other hidden course fees - library printing credit allowance for all

  • the marketization of university education, increasing course costs, and the threat of differential tuition fees

  • cuts to financial support for students from underrepresented groups, international students and postgraduate students// fixing international student fees

LIBERATED EDUCATION: liberated our education!

I will campaign for

  • an educational environment free from sexism, racism, anti-semitism, (dis)ableism, ageism and other harmful oppressions and for the university to place victims and the most vulnerable at the centre of a reviewed and amended disciplinary process (reviewing the reporting system)

  • more investment into decolonization and liberation projects such as The Decolonize Project and Hidden Histories, to centre historically marginalized communities

  • Protecting international students and fixing increasing fees
