It's time to put the spotlight on the Executives! Members of our three Executives have provided vital voices and support to the Vice Presidents this year.
Any year is an important year to be a member of one of our three Executives, but with the steady return to normal, 2021/22 has been a challenge with student voices being very vital to your officers. Inspired by student representatives, find out what they've achieved alongside your Vice Presidents.
The Education Executive is a committee of student representatives responsible for shaping and directing the improvement of education and academic experience at Royal Holloway. Chaired by VP Education Maia Jarvis, they coordinate the work of academic reps within the College, briefing and debriefing on school-level meetings and ensuring effective representation while advising both the Officer Group and other Executives on issues relating to education.
This year, members of the Executive have been involved in some great work to help improve the academic experience for students. Members fed into several pieces of work including Personal Tutors, delivery of education, the structure of teaching, and Maia’s manifesto aims. School Reps have also worked hard to improve student engagement with loads of initiatives from creative takeovers to student suggestion boxes and acting on feedback.
The WCD Executive is a committee of student representatives responsible for shaping and directing the improvement of wellbeing, inclusion, equality, and diversity at Royal Holloway. It also coordinates the work of Collectives, fostering intersectional collaboration while advising both the Officer Group and other Executives.
This year, members of the Executive have been involved in some great work including contributing to plans for both LGBT+ History Month and Women’s History Month, the Disability and Neurodivergent Services, mental health, library accessibility, and helping to amplify minority voices and a College-wide cultural calendar.
The Societies, Sports and Opportunities (SSO) Executive is responsible for ratifying new student groups, including acting as an impartial adjudicator on issues of duplication, as well as approving the process for the annual allocation of resources to student groups. It also supports democratic functions within student groups, acting as an impartial observer for General Meetings and other events.
This year, the SSO Executive has done some fantastic work advising the Officer Group and other Executives on issues relating to the success of student groups. Some of the work members fed into this year include Student Group Training, the Colours Ball and Society Awards panels, ratifying over 10 new groups, and student group funding.
A massive thank you to each SSO member for their engagement and the work they have been involved with this year. Alex would also like to recognise Josh Miskin and Kayleigh Fryer for being so committed over the past two years on the Executive.
A huge thank you goes to all Executive members for the dedication they have shown throughout the year! You can learn more about each of the Executives by checking out their respective pages on our website.
