I've had a huge interest in Irish since I was young. I have experience in a similar role from secondary school being Irish Captain in Coláiste Íosagáin.  

My main goals for this year are: 

  • To ensure that students can get their legal name printed on their ID cards. 

  • To organise cultural and social events that enable people to speak in Irish and/or learn about Irish.  

  • To ensure that signs of information are fully bilingual with the Irish language text coming first (in accordance with the Official Languages Act) 

  • Encouraging Irish within the union in a fun modern way!

I look forward to working with you all this year, so please feel free to reach out to me with any ideas or questions. Thank you!  


Placement Officer

Dominique Baldwin

I'm a mature student in my second year of Social Care and working as a Peer Mentor, Student Ambassador, and Student Councillor. 

I strongly believe that requiring adult students to work for free as part of their placement is unacceptable. It's even more concerning that some courses require placements to be completed elsewhere to avoid bias. 

Given the current economic situation, it's essential that students are paid for their placement work. I plan to work with officers, USI, and other organisations to address the issue of unpaid placements and to hold businesses accountable.


LGBTQ+ Rights Officer

My main goals as the LGBTQ+ Rights Officer will be as followed:

1.To promote and advertise important dates through the student union for LGBTQ+ students.

2.Theme and create events based around said dates in my first goal and promote them accordingly.

3.Streamline and simplify the process of name and gender changing for trans/non-binary students.

I will be doing other stuff as well, but this is what I'm aiming for. Hope to see all my peeps for a successful year! Stay slay!

Hey guys, I'm Roberto, I study Planning and Environmental Management in Bolton Street!
