Kate McIntosh
President She/her

A bit about me...

I'm a Cuthsperson, originally from Essex, and enthusiastic about 19th century history, activism, Carly Rae Jepsen, and anything rose-printed. I can usually be found hunting for something in a charity shop, re-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, on some sort of campaign, or in Cuth’s Bar.

The thing I love most about Durham is the community spirit that characterises so much of what goes on here. Whether it’s the students who give up their time volunteering, the people who campaign for causes they care about, or the way colleges, student groups, and Durham’s incredible history bring people together, there’s somewhere and something for everyone. So many people go above and beyond to help others and it makes me proud to be a Durham student.

To me, being President is about standing up for what we believe in, and championing students' rights. On a day-to-day basis that means representing you to the University, working within the local community and the National Union of Students, and leading campaigns on issues that matter to you, and that will make Durham an even better place to be a student. I’m passionate about getting underrepresented voices heard where it matters and achieving meaningful changes that will be felt by students today and in the future.
