"Step Back, Plan Together, Leap Forward!"

I'm Nathan Epemolu, and I want to be YOUR Strathclyde University BAME Rep! I'm experienced, passionate, and willing!.

Having served as President (Strathclyde Calisthenics Society) and Social Secretary (Jazz Orchestra) and Class Rep, I believe I have what it takes to work with the Student's Union and other reps to lobby for real change on (and off) campus! 

VOTE NATHAN #1 PREFERENCE ON 5TH MARCH!

My Manifesto follows my slogan "Step Back, Plan Together, Leap Forward"

Step Back - I will lobby for a university-wide survey, for both staff and students, to survey what we know about BAME contributions to our 4 Faculties (SBS, HaSS, Science and Engineering) to inform our next steps as a university and publish the results.

Plan Together - "2 Ears 1 Mouth" - I will commit to 2 hours a week for drop-in calls so everyone will be able to drop in and let me know about YOUR concerns and issues so I lobby for change effectively! I will also produce 1 blog/report/video per month updating you on what's going on and how plans are progessing!

 

Leap Forward - I will advance the understanding the university has of BAME contributions to society in Scotland and the United Kingdom.

- I will lobby for a virtual tour through Glasgow' slave trade history

- I will lobby for Unconscious Bias training to be made available to all students and staff

- I will lobby for regular articles, blog posts, videos, and other media celebrating BAME contributions to Scotland and UK society through Strathclyde's media channels.
