Full-Time Officers

Brian Jordan (He/Him) – President 

Brian is the Two-Term President of the Students’ Union and acts as the Chief Spokesperson and head  of the Organisation. Brian studied Nutraceuticals in Health and Nutrition, starting in Cathal Brugha  Street and finishing in Central Quad with a First Class Honours (and a Faculty Award!) 

Throughout his four years in TU Dublin, Brian has been a class representative, school  representative, student councillor, college officer and Chairperson of the national award-winning LGBTQ Society.

His goals for this year include a far more aggressive approach towards the accommodation crisis (the  government currently makes it impossible for Technological Universities to build student  accommodation), far more direct action [protests, walk-outs, public demonstrations] when formal  channels fail (students shouldn’t have to beg for seats and affordable food), and to expose failings by  the Government & University Executive Team in protecting students. 

Fun Fact - Brian’s current interests include chess and (still cheap) wine!
