Vice President Societies and Sport
Hi guys! I’m Lucy and I’m taking on the new role VP Societies & Sport for 2020/21!
I am so excited to work with our student groups over the following year, supporting them as they
develop and shape the lives of students.
Given current virtual and social distancing restrictions, I know student groups are going to be vital
in helping people stay connected and I cannot wait to see the innovation our student groups show to
support our community going forward.
Whilst this may seem daunting, I am ready to support groups 100% to do this and am enthusiastic we
will see some incredible action being taken.
Additionally, it will be great to see how this new role shapes itself throughout the year and if you
have any suggestions/comments on how you think this looks, please do get in touch!
One of my main aims for this year will be developing the support available to student group
committees to ensure they can carry out their roles as effectively as possible and, in turn, provide
their members with high quality activity. Additionally, I want to work on student group funding and
make it more self-sustaining.
I cannot encourage you to get involved in student groups enough; they are a space where you will meet
some amazing people and also be provided with some great opportunities!
Feel free to pop me over an email or message if you ever have a question, and please do say hi if you
see me around campus!
The VP Societies & Sport has joint overall responsibility for developing the support the
Students' Union offers to student groups on campus.
They work closely with the University's Active Lifestyle & Sport department to build
relationships that aid the development of sporting activity on campus. This can include lobbying for
improved facilities, high quality equipment and ensuring all students have access to different ways
of keeping active.
They lead on campaigns and activities related to student health and wellbeing through sport.
Sitting on the Union’s Board of Trustees, VP Societies & Sport spends time working closely
with students on campaign delivery while ensuring the Union is delivering on its strategic plan.
