I want to see a GU that is in touch with the postgrad and mature undergrad community, and which fights on your behalf to ensure postgrads are properly supported in both work and welfare!

Having been around in Cambridge for four years and having been a three time CUSU-GU Executive Officer, I understand the challenges our graduate community faces and am motivated towards addressing them, as #GradsMatter.

I care about developing strong communities and advocating for graduate students. I've had a wide range of experience during my PhD, including being MCR President and Women's Officer at Pembroke .

 

 

 

RON (Re-open Nominations) is also a candidate in these elections.

 


RON stands for Re-open Nominations, and is an option on every ballot form. Every election is contested by RON to let students express that they are unsatisfied with the selection of candidates running. If RON were to win the election, nominations for the role would re-open and the election of that role would be conducted again.

At CUSU, we use a Single Transferable Voting system (STV). STV is designed to give a fair and proportional representation of the most preferred candidate. Every member of CUSU and the GU can vote in the elections, and the voting process is easy for students to take part in. To find out more about STV and how we'll coutn your vote, click here.
