Vote Diini For #1 President

 Hi, I am Diini Muse. I am your current President and Full-time Officer for the schools of Computing, Digital Media & Human Sciences. I will be running for the position of President.

Throughout my time as an Officer, I faced many hardships in the role. I overcame these hardships and pushed through to make a difference. After the departure of our previous president, I took up the role with the intention of holding up the fort, to which my amazing team and I have constantly tried to do. I would like the opportunity to carry on with the projects I have started, many of which wouldn't be able to get done by my first term.

My objectives are:

24 hour library. 
We have been lobbying the university to extend the library hours, which went through. But with the Moorgate move happening, I have been in talks to find a way to make the library 24 hours. It's only with the support of the students that we can achieve this! E.g. More students in the library utilising the facilities 

Catering.
I have been working on a way of lowering the prices of the canteens across all campuses. As students we shouldn’t be paying ridiculously high prices... Just to eat at a place we already spend thousands at. I have a survey I have distributed, please get in contact if you would like to take part. (Its questions about the quality of the food, prices and what students don't like.)

Governance.
The SU structure has been changing over the past year, we have been working on a way to devote our time and resources in order to support students for a life changing experience.

More wellbeing events.
Over the last 6 months we have hosted 2 very successful poetry events. Which student took part in and found it as a way to speak about their stresses and what is on their minds. We have also had various stalls throughout the year to promote mental health and sexual health awareness.

Timetable issues.
Hold the university accountable during the summer break, to make sure they are able to sort out the timetables before students start. I plan on lobbying the University for a Fixed Time Table for the next year.

Mitigated circumstances procedure.
I plan on lobbying the university to improve the mitigated circumstances procedure. In order to cater to the individual needs of students.

If you have any issues you would like to raise, please feel free to approach me and I will put it on my agenda!
