Welfare and Rights Officer
Hi, my name is Chris Page and I’m CUSU/GU Welfare & Rights Officer 2012-13. My job is to provide advice, guidance, and support on personal and academic issues, from sexual health to disability to exam allowances and childcare. No issue is too big or small, and I can provide a listening ear, in depth knowledge of University regulations and rules, and signpost you to services both in the University and wider town. Along with the GU President, I sit on GU Board, and help decide the social, financial and political direction of the GU. I also run cross campus campaigns, organise events, run support groups, and represent student views on a variety of University committees. Last, but by no means least, I oversee the Student Advice Service – which provides free, confidential support to all students of the University of Cambridge.
The Student Support Officer’s position is shared jointly between the Graduate Union and Cambridge University Students’ Union, and is elected in March to take office in July. The Student Support Officer’s duties include overseeing the Student Advice Service – the principal body providing welfare support to students – and undertaking casework.
