Keeping Up with SRUCSA in July
July is a month of planning and recovery for SRUCSA. We’ve all managed to get a full week of annual leave to get us ready for a build up towards students returning. We’ve still found time for some little wins.
- We secured funding from SRUC to provide a fund for students who need help paying for their graduation gowns. Our campaign for a zero cost graduation continues.
- Cara, North Co-President become the STEM Students Director and as Disabled Students Director with Not on My Campus Campaign.
- SRUC provided us with the opportunity to comment on their Climate Action Plan, it’s good, but we want them to do better.
- Taking time this month to decide which SRUCSA officer will attend which SRUC committee will help us make the biggest impact on our manifesto promises.
- We started to plan our year in a level of detail we never have before. Making us more organised and less stressed.
- We have started to plan the activities we will be running for our incoming students.
- We learned how using SRUC committees to our advantage in a great training session delivered by the SRUC Head of Learning and Teaching.
- Went to the SRUC British Sign Language Action Plan group, which bring new energy to the plan and will provide better support to students who use BSL.
- We felt inspired by the work of StandAlone.
- Amy is taking part in reviewing a QAA student engagement toolkit, which will assist students and institutions in solving problems collaboratively.
- We took part in reviewing the accessibility of SRUC’s classroom capture policy, which will give all students the benefit of recorded lectures.
- Amy Central Co-President went to Oatridge Campus to find an office space and have a tour of a campus she has represented for a year and never been to. Hopefully you’ll see much more of her there this year.
