Last week over 2,960 of you voted on campus and online for the 21 candidates who put themselves forward to be your 2016/17 full-time officer team.
SUBU have now announced the elected team of five who will take over from Chloe, Ellie, Reece and Jon this summer, to be your voice in university matters:
- Daniel Asaya - SUBU President
- Jamie Swanson - Vice President Education
- Georgia Larkins - Vice President Community
- Brooke Elias - Vice President Activities
- Emma Baker - Vice President Welfare
Caston Matewu, SUBU’s Democracy and Equality Manager shared “This was a record breaking election where not only did we record the highest number of voters but the elected SUBU President is the first international student to hold this position”.
Daniel is from Nigeria and studied MSc Information Technology in the Faculty of Science & Technology. As well as being the first international student to be SUBU President, he is also the first international student to hold a SUBU Full-time Officer post. Daniel will begin his training with the current officers in June, alongside the team of Vice Presidents.
This year also sees Georgia taking up a new SUBU post of Vice President Community, building on successful campaigns such as the Student Wardens and other initiatives that have become part of SUBU's contributions.
