Project Doctorate

As part of their manifestos, Cameron Storey (Vice President Humanities & Social Sciences) and Tiana Dinard-Samuel (Vice President Communities) have started a project centred on increasing the Students’ Union engagement with postgraduate students.

They both saw that there was a need to better represent the postgraduate community and make Students’ Union events more inclusive. Tiana is currently focused on organising listening forums and student consultations to gather ideas and ways of improving the Students’ Union offering of events for postgraduate students. She is also researching other students’ unions to adapt different practices for implementation at Queen Mary.

Cameron is undertaking a review of societies and volunteering opportunities to understand how postgraduate students engage with student groups and to create new opportunities that are more specific to the interests of the community.

They both have also participated in social media campaigns aimed at explaining how the Students’ Union works for new students, with a specific section for postgraduates. They will also be working with Students’ Union staff to hold a Postgraduate Week in Semester B, reviewing annual campaigns to increase inclusivity and accessibility for students, and supporting PhD students with funding and extension requests issues.

Please check back to the campaigns page for further updates.
