College of Engineering, Environment, and Science – Christopher Eban (ae4094@coventry.ac.uk)

The month of May, being my penultimate month left in office, came with a lot of mixed feelings. First was the feeling of sadness, as I'll be waving goodbye to some extraordinary people I have had the privilege of working with during my time as the part-time officer for the College of Engineering, Environment and Science. I'm also excited to take the full-time officer role I'll be taking in mid-June. Again, the month of May is my best month so far as a representative of Your SU, as it afforded me lots of opportunities to connect with students across the main campus through:

  • Induction talks, where I met and spoke to several May intake students across the various colleges in Coventry University campus about Your SU: who we are, what we stand for, how we represent students, and the benefits of becoming student reps.
  • Your SU fairs and stalls, where I participated in several fairs and stalls across the various colleges in Coventry University campus, and as a result, we had over a hundred students apply to become reps.
  • I had the privilege of being a part of the selection process of reps through a careful and thorough interview process alongside some amazing staff leads.
  • I attended several meetings, such as the Union Affairs meeting and the Coventry Executive meeting, while chairing the CEES May Student Voice Working Group Meeting.

In the month of June, being my last month as the part-time officer for the College of Engineering, Environment and Science, we have a couple of events line up and already in the works. One event I'm looking forward to is Coffee Chat and Craft. This is an event being organised by a collaborative effort of both the College of Engineering, Environment and Science, and the School of Health and Care. This event is scheduled to hold on Friday 14 June at the Alison Gingell Building from 10:30am until 2pm. Kindly plan to attend!

At this juncture, it is safe to say that I have completed all my manifesto points which were primarily centred on increasing student engagement, while maintaining a healthy academic balance for the students.

As your School of Health and Care (SHC) part-time officer, I am excited to provide you with an update on the recent happenings and progress made in our school. Here are some highlights from the past month:

Meetings: During the past month, I have actively participated in various meetings representing your interests and concerns. This meetings include Union Executives meeting, Student voice matters, and together, we are making positive changes for our schools.

Manifesto Progress: I am pleased to report progress on several manifesto points. International field trip interest survey form for school of health and care received great responses from students and this was discussed with the Senior leadership of the SHC. Global Healthcare Management field trip advert is currently out and plans currently ongoing. Discussion on field trip for other courses and SHC in general is still ongoing.

Upcoming Event: I am excited to share some upcoming projects that I am currently working on. We are in the process of organising an employability collaborative event called “What next". This event will equip graduating students with essential information and knowledge to enhance your employability prospects and post graduation pathway. I encourage all of you to participate and take advantage of this valuable opportunity.

SHC Roundtable Talk holding on Thursday 6th June is another upcoming event designed to present students with the opportunity to meet face to face with decision makers and share your thoughts, concerns and suggestions. You are required to signup and attend the event.

Stalls, Activities, and Events: I am thrilled to share the success of the stalls, activities, and events that we have planned and delivered this month. Our reps recruitment stall received an overwhelming response with many students applying to become a rep. Rep applications are still open for the new academic year, there are a lot of vacancies still available.

I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to serve as your part-time officer and to work towards improving the student experience within the School of Health and Care. I encourage you to reach out to me with any concerns, suggestions, or ideas you may have. Together, we can create a vibrant and inclusive learning environment!
