The Support Zone is led by the elected Vice President Support and is responsible for running support campaigns, ensuring the Union has student support in mind in all its activities, and for collating & acting upon student feedback on University support services.
VP Support - Paul Olaniyan
Hi, this year I would be leading the energetic support zone in ensuring that student wellbeing is an utmost priority. I believe students cannot enjoy the full university experience without support towards their wellbeing. This year the support zone would be focusing on ensuring that adequate support is provided for minority groups on campus and encouraging inclusivity within the student body. The support zone would be at the forefront of wellbeing campaigns all year long and is also determined to actively lead in raising awareness on vital issues that affect student wellbeing. Feel free to join us for any of our zone meetings.
