Hi, I’m Imran and I’m standing to be your Vice President Education for the coming year. I’m from Glasgow and I’m currently in my final year degree of MSc Supply Chain and Operations Management.
I’m not political rather follower of Lean Six Sigma methodologies that is to identify and eliminate waste and improve the quality, even if it means to speak the truth bluntly
I believe it is really important that now is the time that we have someone who is dedicated to representing students as students throughout their academic lives.
All too often, the focus on making our courses and teaching better can be over-shadowed by the more fun aspects of being a student. Elect me and I’ll make sure that we have great academic experiences as well as a lot of fun!
Click on my manifesto below to find out what I have planned.
Now more than ever we need a Student Union that can stand up for the student experience.
If elected, I will provide:
BETTER representation of students’ education. University management is spending £49million on a new research building whilst they close departments. Students are having their courses shut down with no serious consultation. I will hold a student & staff conference on the future of Strathclyde which will produce a paper outlining an alternative vision for our education.
FASTER response to Management cuts and closures. I will empower class reps to defend their courses- they need much more advice and support from the student union. Inter-departmental meetings will be held, aimed at providing students with up to date information on their course.
STRONGER stance towards University Management. We need a student union that can hold management to account: the books should be opened up to see the university's finances, what its plans for the future are and how much management are being paid. I will produce regular bulletins informing students, staff and the media about management's agenda.
I am standing alongside other campaigners because we have a collective vision of a more democratic, campaigning student union. Vote for BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER.
Hi, I am Rebecca Maxwell Stuart and I want you to re-elect me as your Vice President Education!
Over the past year I have worked hard to ensure that what you want out of your degree is what you get. Here are some of the things I have achieved for you:
- Feedback for exams
- An early warning system, so you know if you can get into Honours or not, with your grades
- Text messaging on important news and closing of buildings due to unforeseen circumstances, such as the James Weir fire
- A successful “Contact Your Class Rep” tool on MyPlace
So what do I want to do next year?
- No more exam bunching
- All assignments to be submitted electronically – say goodbye to printing off assignments!
- Alternative forms of assessment instead of exams
- Feedback you can actually learn from!
- Increased communication between students & staff – if you want something in your learning experience – I’ll make sure your voice is heard
- Making the class rep community bigger and better
- Class Reps and other volunteering opportunities at University recognised on transcripts
- Better Postgraduate representation
Who is RON?
RON is a democratic mechanism to allow voters to choose not to elect any of the candidates in the election. If RON wins the election, then nominations will re-open and this will give people a 2nd chance to stand for the position.
Why should you vote for RON?
You should vote RON if you feel the other candidates are not up to the job.
However if you think that only one candidate is worth your vote, then vote RON as your second choice. If there are two candidates that are worth your vote then vote RON for the third choice, and so on.
What happens if RON wins?
If RON wins the election, nominations will be re-opened for that particular position. New candidates will have the opportunity to run for the position and those that ran previously will be able to run again.
If you have any questions regarding the Elections, please get in touch with Al Wilson, Engagement & Support Manager on email@example.com
