Hi, I’m Hillary and I’m your Undergraduate Education Officer. My role involves representing, protecting and enhancing your academic life. From how you’re taught, to what you’re taught and how you’re assessed, I’m here for you!
I was a Social Policy student whilst at the University of Bristol and spent a lot of my time getting involved in wider university activities. Most notably, I really enjoyed being the Chair of the Widening Participation Network where I got to work with the SU and university in promoting a more inclusive and diverse student body and student experience. I was also a part of the African Caribbean Society where I got to connect with people from my background and share my culture with fellow members and the wider university.
The highlight of my time as a student was being one of the SU’s NUS Delegates, where I was able to engage with other unions and national campaigns advocating for students, like the People’s Vote campaign!
I’m super excited to be able to represent students full time and continue to fight for a better educational experience for all students. The areas I’m determined to address include: continuing the efforts to decolonise the curriculum, making assessments more suited to student development and making sure pastoral support is the best that it can be.
If you ever want to have a chat about anything, whether it’s an issue with your university work, or you just want someone to listen and have a laugh with, feel free to email me here. You can also find me during my officer open hours on campus.
