What is a Student Trustee?

              * Student Trustees sit on the Student Union’s Board of Trustees, the highest level of decision making for students

              * They make objective financial and legal decisions on behalf of the Student Union that consider what is best for ALL students

              * It’s their role to ensure that the Student Union, a charitable organisation, sticks to a clear vision, mission and values

 

Why me?

I care about King’s and its students and want to ensure the university provides YOU with the environment, tools and support to thrive.  I will be an HONEST, ACCOUNTABLE and OBJECTIVE leader. As a former employee and manager in the Alumni Office of King’s, I will bring a unique perspective to the Student Trustee Board. Communicating effectively with other high level decision-makers of King’s is an essential task for each Trustee. This is an undertaking I am both familiar with and successful at due to my past roles as an employee of King’s, a member of city-wide policy boards, and charity manager. I look forward to ensuring the Student Union's actions reflect the interest of YOU, the student body.
