WHAT IF... ...our democracy made a difference and volunteers felt appreciated: • Give us more power to shape our union by
electing the priority campaign • Because democracy should be transparent I will reform Union council and the Zones to make sure they facilitate accountability. • I will look at ways in which KSCV award winners could be entered into a prize draw. • Make sure liberation is fully implemented and at the heart of our student union.
...education was at the heart of the union: • Make sure that during the Templeman
redevelopment all students continue to have the fullest access possible to learning resources and study space. • I will work towards reducing and highlighting all hidden course costs for students and will lobby for all books found in the Core Text Collection to be available as E-Books. • I will work with the Kent Graduate School to ensure that Postgraduates have more space
...Kent Union wasn’t a barrier to sports and societies: • Consult clubs and societies on what kind of
space they need in a new Union building. • Increase the amount of front line staff in the Union and ensure staff are appropriately placed so they provide the most effective help. • Reform sports and societies funding system, ensuring ease of access to their funds.
...university life was safer and more affordable • I will introduce a local price match promise on essential items like bread, milk and butter. Making sure Essentials is competing with alternatives like Sainsbury’s local and Londis. • I will speed up the Venue queue by ensuring every night has an optional prepay ticket service with queue jump. • I will ensure the Council and University resolve the safety issues with Tyler hill • Campaign for greater variation in the price structure of the University of Kent’s accommodation costs for all campus' so that accommodation is affordable for all.
