Hello, my name is Catherine Simpson and i am your Community Officer for 2022/23.

  • Likes?

    I love being in the outdoors and meeting up with friends to try out new activities! Homemade cocktails are my favourite thing and I love reading sociological fiction novels. I'm excited to be the Treasure for the Pole Fitness Society next year and to keep improving with salsa

Coventry University is an incredibly diverse institution with students joining from all over the world. The Community Officer involves representing the interests of these students and promoting a diverse and positive cultural experience for all students. 100’s of students get involved in equity, diversity and inclusion campaigns each year, these campaigns can focus on a number of student issues. Catherine’s job is to lead these areas, and provide fresh ideas, making sure the needs of our students are met across our campuses and online. Catherine runs campaigns, events, and projects to engage and support the student community and support inter-cultural engagement between students.

I will work collaboratively with the university to make the inclusion policies more student focused, increase accessibility to green spaces in and around campus, and lead initiatives to tackle student loneliness.

Throughout the year, I will attend a variety of meetings to represent the student perspective such as the Student Union’s & University’s Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Committees as well as Board of Trustees. I'm looking forward to the year ahead and to get started on campaigns!
