…Now that I’ve got your attention!
It’s Friday and it’s my turn to let you know what my priorities for the year are going to be. Exciting stuff!
The process of re-thinking, re-crafting (and remembering) our manifestos is one of the many things we’re all up to this summer. After much deliberation and plenty of debate, we have all picked the three areas that we think are essential to work on this year. I’m writing this blog so that you guys have the opportunity to reflect on my plans and tell me what you think. Is this plan a great shout? Is something else more important? Now is your chance to tell me before anything is set in stone, so let me know in the comments below, or drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Mental Health
– Work with external organisations and experts to deliver fantastic campaigns and workshops for students: let’s normalise mental health issues.
– Work with the university to attain better mental health resource, specifically focusing on the counselling service
– Provide mental health guidance and resource around high stress times, like exams.
– Fight for better student rights by working to create SUSU’s very own student-centric and ethical Letting Agency. This will guarantee the standard of housing is raised, long term.
– Target messages about housing rights and guidance heavily throughout the year, to ensure more students are savvy with their choices.
- Sustainable and Real Community Change
– Work with external community groups to seek out projects that SUSU can get stuck into, with the aim of making a substantial impact in an organisation with under-privileged Southampton residents.
– Make SUSU’s community strategy sustainable and ambitious: is there a five year project students want to work on? Let’s think BIG!
– Improve Community Volunteering and address the need for SUSU staff, who will be able to help us achieve our goals in this area.
Now, these three goals are by no means exhaustive and I’ll be working on PLENTY more things beside. But not a bad place to start, huh?
Let me know what you think!
