Dear Social and Historical Sciences - Family!

I am Christina and I am ready to react to your concerns and worries to create a positive and sustainable impact for the Social and Historical Sciences Faculty at UCL.

Since approx. 10 years I am regularly engaging in representative tasks for fellow students or simply other friends in an academic context in different Unis and political organisations across the world. Currently, I am the Course Representative of the 2yr International Master’s Programme in Economy, State and Society at SSEES. However, I want to take action for us as a faculty.

I do not only enjoy supporting and connecting other people but I am experienced and familiar with understanding how to stand up for a team of like-minded fellows within different social structures. I am a reliable, cheerful and approachable person that loves to lend you an ear.

My main topics:

#Environment #Resourcemngmt #StudyExeperience #Facultynetwork

 becoming the most environmentally friendly faculty

 react against resource mismanagement (p.ex. overcrowded rooms, chaotic timetable management, etc.)

 create more options to connect and unite as a faculty

 increase in study spaces and better access to educational resources (p.ex. online tools, lecture recordings) for postgraduates

Why are you standing?: 

With an ethnic blend coming from Italy, Iran, and London, we aim at combining our different set of skills in order to represent and improve our Faculty of Historical and Social Sciences.

-We are running to speak up for all of you, but mostly for those who can’t, or are too afraid to do so.

-We are running to provide a safe point of reference for students, and because two minds are better than one.

-We are NOT running to change things, but to provide YOU with the opportunity to change them.

Our three priorities:

1) COOPERATION: As there are over 2000 students within our faculty alone, we propose intra-departmental collaboration to share experiences, information and to socialise and network with fellow students.

2) FEEDBACK IMPROVEMENTS: We plan on getting more detailed feedback that is tailored for each student and that helps all students collectively improve.

3) MODULE SELECTION: Before the start of the year, students should have a deeper overview of the module selection, being to select modules with a syllabus and have a better understanding of what each course requires.

Ad Maiora!

Why are you standing?: 

Heya! My name is Christos (He/Him), and I am an Archaeology Master’s Student. I hope to contribute to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences as a Faculty Representative!

My experience includes three years as a Student Representative during my Undergraduate at the University of Cambridge, where I received a Highly Commended status from the Award for Outstanding Student Contribution to Education for my services.

Being a Faculty Rep is something that gives you a lot of influence. Hence, I will try to:

• Decolonize: I will ask for an alternate reading list and submit policies that broaden their curricula and integrate post-colonial critiques into their coursework and reading lists

• Re-green: Ask that a review is made of practices in the Faculty, and identify where we can reduce our carbon footprint. Try to apply a Goldsmiths-style policy on reducing the Faculty’s Carbon footprint.

• Help out: Such a high-stress environment can be tough for everyone. I will investigate for any lack of facilities for pastoral care and make sure they are covered. I will also provide a considerate ear 24/7.

The fact that students have a voice in Faculty Boards is a tremendous asset. I will attend all meetings meticulously and be there for everyone’s demands. I hope that you find me worthy of representing you. Should you do so, I’ll be with you till the end of the line.

Why are you standing?: 

I’m Ashleigh, a full-time MSc Security Studies student (Department of Politics). I am experienced in public speaking, and have served in positions of academic representation for over 10 years. I’m running to be Faculty Rep in order to help achieve a more inclusive atmosphere. My main priorities are:

1. Diversifying the Curriculum. If elected, I would seek to work with Liberating the Curriculum here at UCL to host focus groups with students in our faculty, about how we may better diversify the reading material in our curricula.

2. Digitising Key Texts. While UCL already has a comprehensive policy for digitising resources, I would seek to gather information on the key texts for each course that have not yet been digitised. Not everyone is able to afford every key text, and we need to better address this issue.

3. Streamlining Communication. As the Head of Publicity & Social Media for a local charity, I understand the need for more efficient communication. My manifesto alone cannot cover the numerous and diverse needs of the 60+ courses that I seek to represent. As Faculty Rep, I will establish an online suggestion box which would be accessible 24/7.
