Activities Officer

You are here: UoNSU >

Denis Lelin
At university, involvement as the International Officer, NUDance team captain, Welcome and Karnival volunteer, and JCR Exec member, has given me more than a degree. Therefore, I believe that engagement in the SU’s activities can really spice up your life. Everyone should feel empowered to get involved despite the barriers they might face!

No matter WHO YOU ARE, I will make SU activities easily accessible for students who might feel marginalised, by providing better inclusivity training for student groups as well as making our events and communications accessible to all or be transparent when they are not.

Irrespective of WHERE YOU ARE: on a different campus or studying from afar, I will provide more opportunities to partake in SU events and activities through online platforms or my commitment to the SU’s presence at all learning sites.

I will support and reward your involvement regardless of WHAT YOU ARE. Whether it is a large or small society, a student worker or a volunteer, an individual or a Student-Run-Service, or any other student group, I will ensure tailored support and representation for each type of activity.

Vote Denis for activities - Spice Up Your Life!
