Hi, I’m Laura and I’m your Co-President, Welfare and Diversity. Hailing from Birmingham, I've just finished my English degree and I've spent the last three years involved in various parts of the SU, including being LGBT+ Officer last year. I organised lots of fun things like an LGBT+ sports team, which meant I got to try my hand at lots of sports and proudly demonstrate my complete lack of hand-eye coordination! I love RHUL and I’m excited to spend another year here.

In my role, I’ll be…

  1. Doing work around student welfare and promoting inclusivity on campus.
  2. Representing student welfare in meetings with the College.
  3. Improving the welfare support we provide as a Union, by building stronger campaigns around sexual health, mental health and liberation.
  4. Developing policy to make sure welfare and diversity are long-term priorities of the Students’ Union.

How to contact me...

I'm located in the open plan office upstairs in the Students' Union. My door is always open so drop in anytime or you can always send me an email or tweet me @lauragracelewis.
