Education – Lucy Gault

Hi everyone,

I’m Lucy and I’m going to be your Student Officer Education for the next year – here for all your educational and academic needs. I ran for this role because I want to make sure that your voice as a student is being heard and that you are being fairly represented and supported at every level throughout the university.

I plan to do that by:

  • Working with School & Course Reps - making sure they are adequately trained and supported throughout the year to raise and deal with student concerns and effect real change in their schools
  • Introducing Faculty Representatives as a way of having the student voice heard at the higher levels within Queen’s at which there is currently no student representation – not ok! Student faculty representation will give students the chance to really engage with what is happening in the institution
  • Continuing to work on Student Partnership – a lot of work has begun on this project, initiated by my predecessor and I want to see it through. Students are not customers, and should not be treated as such. This project will officially establish students as partners in their education

These are just some of the things I want to work on this year but overall, for me, it is all about your education, your way, and having your voice heard.

I’ll be here to help throughout the year so please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
