Disabled Students' Officer

Sophie Kitching

Disabled Students' Officer

Hi, I’m Sophie (she/they) and I’m your Disabled Students’ Officer this year. I’m here to represent disabled students on campus and push the university to become more inclusive. I’m always happy to hear from students, so if you’d like to let me know about an issue, or just have a chat, drop me an email on disabledstudents@warwicksu.com.

Course:
Final-year Global Sustainable Development

Hometown:
I’m originally from a rural part of Oxfordshire.

Fun fact about me:
I really hate trying to think of facts that are sufficiently fun to be actually interesting, but boring enough that you don’t think I’m really weird. So, here’s a not particularly fun fact: my favourite time of year is autumn, because I love those days that are bright and sunny but also quite cold and really breezy. I also like cats.

My role and what I hope to achieve this year:
As Disabled Students’ Officer, I represent disabled students on campus - including those who are neurodivergent or who have mental health conditions. I’m really keen to make Warwick more inclusive, both by tackling any issues that arise for students throughout the year (so please do get in touch!) as well as delivering on as many of my manifesto pledges as possible - and working with other part-time officers on issues impacting Disabled Students. For example, I am keen to push for better disability awareness training for staff, improve the ease of reporting accessibility issues on campus, and work towards more transparent processes regarding reasonable adjustments and mitigating circumstances.
