Education Committee Member
Hello, my name is Chris. I am a fourth year law and politics student and a member of your education committee. My remit this year is simple. Promote student issues before the kind of petty ideological politics that tends to overcrowd our campus. I believe in individual responsibility, free speech, and innovation, and I hope to take that onto the committee with me. I think, for example, that the students union needs to reaffirm its support for a zero tolerance coursework submission policy. I am committed to promoting a sustainable solution to the crisis of university funding the UK currently faces, but I think the committee needs to start making practical suggestions once the cuts start to bite rather than just getting bogged down in opposition to them.
