I’m James, a PPE finalist and St Chad’s JCR President. Whilst getting a fair deal for students at St Chad’s over the last year, I have seen the DSU push prices up at our College bars and cut off funding to student groups. The SU has achieved much to mitigate against Covid-19 and debate Durham culture – work that must continue. Yet with the SU lacking broad support amongst students, it’s time for change.
Let’s get the #DSUDoneDifferently
I have a proven track-record of improving the experience of the students I have represented. As Undergraduate Faculty Rep for Social Science and Health, I brought student voices to the table and got departments to answer for questionable policy decisions. And as JCR President of St Chad’s, I have successfully fought to decrease the price of self-catered accommodation at the College, ensured a lowered price of JCR fees, and prioritised working with Social Mobility groups to make Chad’s more affordable.
