Stanford - Union Affairs Officer

Talk to me about:

Curriculum, assessment and feedback

Mental health awareness

Campaigning for free education and against course costs

Hi, I’m Mason, your Undergraduate Education Officer here at Bristol SU!

My job is to oversee your time at University from the academic to the wellbeing side of things. This includes assessments, timetabling, careers, mental health and fighting for free education!

I’m a 21 year old Economics and Management undergraduate from London. During my time at University I was the JCR President of City Centre Living, an Economics Course Rep, BME Campaigns Coordinator at Bristol SU and the Equality and Diversity Officer for The 93% Club!

I ran to be Undergraduate Education Officer because this year is an incredibly important year for Higher Education given the introduction of the Teaching Excellence Framework, accompanied by higher tuition fees. Most importantly, I ran to ensure that liberation, mental health, and wellbeing are at the centre of every decision we make and influence.

Please feel free to get in touch anytime on Facebook, Twitter or via email with any queries!

Here's what I want to do for you:

1. Increased careers support 

Increased careers support especially for students from marginalised or WP backgrounds.

2. Leading the campaign against the rise in fees

3. Liberate the curriculum

Liberate the curriculum using the outcomes from the BME Attainment Gap report.

4. Put wellbeing at the centre of academic reforms

Ensure that student wellbeing and mental health is put at the centre of the structure of the academic year and assessment reforms. 

5. Continue the modernisation of pastoral support

Continue the modernisation of pastoral support at the university to ensure it meets the needs of all students.
