PRESIDENT SURREY – STEFAN RENAS GUTIERREZ YILDIRIM
The basic job description for President:
The President will:
• Be the figurehead of all Surrey campuses
• Develop campaigns in students’ interests
• Sit on relevant committees, including the Board of Governors
• Ensure the Vice Presidents are working cohesively across their campuses
• Liaise with the University on the development of the student experience, complaints, equal opportunities and disciplinary procedures.
In the last few years I helped organise events such as Greg Sestero and Dick and Dom, ran a meme society and went around handing out beans while dressed in a bear suit. For the Epsom, Canterbury or Rochester people who have no idea what I’m talking about, then good, you are the lucky ones. Anyway, so I’m your brand-new elected Student President Surrey!
As well as being open to your ideas I have some things I want to focus on this year:
Action for Black Students Campaign:
· Increase employment of Black Staff on campus
· Work on lowering attainment gap
· More cultural events and art on campus
· Monthly meetings with campaign group
· Encourage tutors to bring in Black History into courses
Students Against Sexual Assault Campaign
· Get UCA to make a statement
· More protection and support for survivors and harsher action towards abusers
· UCA version of asking for Angela scheme and consent training
Improving sustainability on campus

· More vegan options

Bigger events for when the Government allows!

If you have any questions then feel free to message me on Facebook, email me or visit me in the Farnham/Epsom office for a good ol’ chat! I’m really looking forward to representing you guys and being part of some positive changes as well as just having a sick year!
