College of Engineering, Environmental, and Science – Christopher Eban

My first month as the CEES College Officer was filled with so much excitement and adventure that these words do not properly convey the feeling. I have had the privilege of working with very brilliant people ranging from tutors to staff leads, to other officers, student reps and students. During my first weeks in office, I have done the following:

  • Attend the reps development conference 2024; where all part-time officers took part in a Q&A session. This was my first outing as the CEES College Officer.
  • Hosted the ‘meet your college officer’ hybrid meeting with 16 CEES reps present. I had the privilege of getting to know the reps in my college and we all collectively examined my manifesto and discussed my plans.
  • Attend rep stalls across Coventry University main campus, successfully registering over 100 students for the different available rep roles.
  • Attend several Student Voice on Tour stalls, led by Panchami Satheesh, the SU's Education Officer.
  • I have also attended several other meetings, including the CEES student voice working group, one-to-one meetings with my staff lead and the rep social night.
  • I am 75% done with the planning and execution of a Mental Health Conference on academic pressure, in collaboration with the Student Union. This is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 27 March, in and for the students of the College of Engineering and Environmental Science

College of Business and Law - Ujwala Korukanti

This leap month has been a whirlwind of experiences – from my first Student Voice group meeting to Union affairs and Coventry executive meetings! I've been actively gaining knowledge and honing my communication skills, hitting a major milestone by achieving my manifesto point about the timetable in just the first month of my role. Currently, I'm putting my efforts into getting  exciting field trips options to students around CBL. I am thrilled to share that I also took part in a postgraduate networking stall, connecting with fellow peers. I am looking forward to upcoming awards, and I must say, my line manager has been incredibly sweet and helpful, guiding me through every step in my first month. Without her, I wouldn't have given my best. 
Stay tuned for more updates on my journey!

College of the Arts and Society - Layna Forbes

In February, I collected student feedback, attended meetings, and planned my campaign launch for a neuro-inclusive campus. 

  • I collected student feedback during meetings and Your Course Conversations, and I was pleased to see staff and students working together to improve the student experience. 
  • Additionally, I participated in the PG networking fair, where university services provided PG students with information about the support available during their time here. This included well-being, job-related support through Handshake and SU as a rep, academic writing and library support, and more. 
  • Finally, I collaborated with the Disability Community and SU community staff to launch my campaign to create a more neuro-inclusive campus. I made a form to gather students' feedback on how neuro-inclusive they feel the university is already. If you want to learn more, you can find the survey here:, and you can find the campaign here: Campaign Launch: Building a Neuro-inclusive campus (

In March, I am planning two events to celebrate Neurodiversity Week. These events will be two neurodivergent-friendly events open to diagnosed, undiagnosed, and allies of neurodivergent students to spread awareness and increase equity and the sense of belonging.
