Hello everyone, I’m Alice and I’m so excited to be your Students’ Union President. Before being elected to this position I was the JCR President at St Aidan’s College and a Biological sciences student before that.
As your President my main job is to represent you. This representation spans different levels, from Colleges, via the common room Presidents and Union reps to the wider University. I represent students at the highest level of the University and am involved in key decision making processes. Nationally through our National Union of Students’ myself and the other officers work to develop your Union and make your voice heard nationwide. In my capacity as President I’m also in charge of democracy and engagement with your SU, and I’m the main spokesperson for the Union. Make sure you drop me a line if you’ve got any questions or follow me on Twitter to keep up with what I’m up to!
I want you to feel that your Students’ Union is your home. Between our team of Student Officers and full time staff we can offer support and opportunities during your University career. Whilst I’ve been in Durham I’ve been involved in my College and the SU on lots of different levels and I’ve loved every minute of it, so would encourange everyone to get involved!

The Direction of the Union Every year your Student Officers will work on three priority objectives, which you can see here. These are not the only areas they will be working on, but they are their key focus. They report on their progress towards these priorities during Assembly and we will publish updates here on the website.
1. I will...
make sure College Students’ Union Reps play a key role in shaping Durham SU, because I understand the importance of Colleges in our time at Durham and it’s so important that we work better with your reps.
2. I will ...
ensure as many students as possible are involved in making decisions about things that affect them, because we’re entering a big time of change in Durham and it’s vital that we, as a student body, help shape what’s going on around us.
3. I will ...
make sure Queen’s Campus students keep benefiting from the best student experience possible. Because in the lead up to and during the move of Queen’s up to Durham, we need to make sure that student priorities are the focus of decisions and that Queen’s students are welcomed to Durham.
