Projects and Priorities

  • Student wellbeing is not negatively affected by learning remotely

    Working on it

    I will achieve this by developing a criteria and process for prioritising access to study places on campus and working with the Student Support Review Group to ensure the regulations and procedures which underpin these have students interests at the forefront.

    I will also work closely with the Education Officer on two isses; making lectures more accessible through Lecturecast and tracription and retaining self-certification for extenuating circumstances.

    Update 13/04/21

    Student consultation is now complete. We'll be working with UCL to analyse the result and determine the next steps and how to run the student focus groups. 

  • Students are able to access support in whatever circumstances they find themselves in

    Working on it

    I will do this by building relationships with external partners that support students in difficult circumstances, and working with UCL to improve the Report + Support tool. 

    I will also provide more training for those who students look to for support, as well as more information for students on where to access specialist support. 

    Update 13/04/21

    Conversations around streamlining Report and Support have been taking place but are currently on hold. The Women's Officer is working on this. 

     

  • Students have more spaces where they feel more comfortable and part of the University community

    Working on it

    In order to make this a reality I will build a more inclusive events programme, as well as lobby UCL for more Union space to provide students with more inclusive community-building spaces. 

    This drive for more inclusive spaces will also come through working with the Democracy, Operations & Community Officer, in order to diversify our cafe offer on campus.

    Update 15/02/21

     Still lobbying UCL for improved Union space. I've also been bringing up the point of inclusive and accessible spaces at UCL East. 

  • International students have better access to improve their English language

    Working on it

    I will achieve this by working with UCL Academic Services on assessing whether a no detriment policy should consider English language proficiency, as well as working with the Advice Service to develop language and writing support within our remote operation.

    In addition, I will work with the International Students' Forum to develop informal opportunities for students to interact online in order to improve their English proficiency, and support the International Students' Officer to rebuild the International Students Network, creating a supportive community for international students. 

    Update 13/04/21

    Working with the ACC looking at the provision of discipline-specific language and writing support for students. Agreed on a blended approach with both in-person and online courses.

Get to know Yasmeen

I stood for election because I had experienced some things during my time at UCL which I didn’t think were fair or just, so naturally, I thought the best way to tackle those issues was to stand for election and hopefully be given the opportunity to make changes which positively impact our students.

This year my main priority is to ensure that students feel safe and welcome in the Union by fighting for inclusivity and representation of all groups and identities and by building a solid support system for student concerns across campus.
