The Vice President Student Development is responsible for student life outside of academic life! Ovoke's role is to promote activities that help students to develop, such as supporting student led clubs and societies and providing opportunities to develop skills through activities such as volunteering.
About me: Hi, My name is Jamie and I am the president of the Accounting Society and also the third year course rep for Bachelor of Accounting at the Lanarkshire campus.
What do I want to achieve? I believe that every society at UWS has a beneficial purpose, each offering something unique. Societies are a great way to connect people and that couldn’t have been more apparent during lockdown. I want to help societies get the recognition they deserve for their efforts and also hope to get societies connecting with each other to organise joint events. As president of a society I would hope to bring the skills and knowledge gained to assist other societies to achieve their goals and make them beneficial for all.
Course: Biomedical Science
About me: Hi, my name's Tarita, I'm a 4th year Biomedical Science student in Paisley, student rep for my course, Union volunteer, co-president of Nordic Society and a member of the African-Caribbean Society.
What do I want to achieve? I have loved my time with the Nordic Society, I'm very proud of the positive impact our events have had on the student experience of others. I would like to leave behind a legacy of stronger co-operation between societies. Different societies are doing great on their own but imagine what we could achieve if we pooled our resources, creativity and experience together! I'm hoping my experience with fundraising and organising successful student events for societies could help other societies to succeed, expand and thrive.
Course: Society, Politics, and Policy
About me: Hey ! I’m Ath and I'm the UWS LGBT+ Officer. I’m also a course rep and have been involved with societies throughout my time at UWS.
What do I want to achieve? I want to make sure that all of our societies are inclusive and that all of our students are represented within our union, and ensure that liberation societies are receiving the support they require to thrive!
