Hello! My name is Chih-Hsiang, and I am your Societies Officer for this year. It is my responsibility to support and guide our 200+ societies and to ensure that they are able to deliver enriching and unique opportunities to the whole Warwick community.
Politics and International Studies
Fun fact about me:
I watch and read quite a bit of anime and manga
My role and what I hope to achieve this year:
Societies make up a large part of the student experience at Warwick and are a fantastic way to explore something new whilst meeting loads of new friends. Whether you want to further an existing passion or learn a new skill, with over 200 societies, there will always be something for you. Since all our societies are student-run and led, you will find opportunities to run for exec positions to help shape the direction of the societies that you care about. This is an experience I can strongly recommend!
As your societies officer, it is my job to ensure that all societies are well supported by the SU so they are able to achieve their full potential. Whether it is through dealing with concerns, supporting societies with planning and promoting events, or illuminating issues at the University level, I am here to help!
In this upcoming year, I will focus on getting societies back on their feet. As the pandemic has negatively impacted many societies throughout the past year, I will make sure that all societies will receive the support that they need in order to function effectively and to ensure the safe return of in-person events. Likewise, I hope to build on and improve exec training to ensure that new society execs are well equipped to run their societies, ensure that mental health is brought to the fore-front of the SU agenda, and move towards cutting red tape and making the SU website more accessible and easier to navigate.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or just want a chat regarding how your society is getting on, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
