Hi everyone! I’m Henn and I am your Students’ Union President.
My role is to represent your views to the University and lobby for changes to improve student life at Royal Holloway. I also have a large role in the Students’ Union’s governance, overseeing many of the things that go on here at the SU.
Engagement is a significant part of my role and something I will be focusing on more this year as we step out of the pandemic. We are the representative voice of students on campus, and we want to make sure that you as students feel represented by your SU and feel a part of what we do.
I also work on various campaigns lobbying for change that matters to you. This year I will be looking at improving the Wellbeing Services by addressing the resource issues within their teams, improving student safety on campus and in the local community, creating a loyalty card system for SU events, and working with the College to improve the misconduct processes and complaints procedures.
I will be leading a key piece of work this year, launching the process of decolonisation of not only the curriculum but also all College services. Decolonisation requires a whole institutional response that accounts for more than simply diversifying reading lists.
If you ever have any questions or fancy a chat please do not hesitate to get in touch!
