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!
