Once a month we’ll be sharing with you what we, your FXU Presidents, have been up to via this blog. We’ll be letting you know who we’ve been talking to, which high-level meetings we’ve been attending, what the feedback is on issues you’ve raised to us and update you on our Top Ten Priorities. Make sure you check it out and if you want to find out more, pop into the office to see us or drop us an email.
Here’s what FXU President Falmouth, Fred Mallin, has been working on at the start of the Autumn Term…
The Charter should communicate the ethos of the institution. The emphasis should be on partnership, working between staff and students. I have been working with VCEG (Vice Chancellor’s Executive Group) in completing the document. More simply, it is the set of rules you sign up to when you first enrol.
Creative Skills Exchange (CSE)
I am looking to develop the CSE to boost cross course, and eventually institutional, collaboration in academia. I am still collecting data and conducting research to see whether this is a viable campaign, however the response so far has been a very positive and supporting one! The last event was on the 28/10/2015 with a really varied group of students who loved it so much they had to be asked to leave and so kept chatting in the Stannary. The next event will be in the New Year, check out the CSE Facebook Page, or sign up here.
Introducing Preach to a President!
Grace (President Exeter) and I are keen to introduce a new student feedback opportunity called ‘Preach to a President’. This is where we will put aside some time every week just for you; we will be around the campuses in a variety of places (ie The Compass or Fox Cafe) to collect feedback from you about absolutely anything you want to throw at us (not literally). We are still working out our availability but stay tuned to the FXU website for more information to come.
A huge thank you and well done to all of you who nominated yourselves for a Rep position! The votes are in and candidates trained. I look forward to working with you all. But to all students; make sure you make the most of the rep scheme; it is a fantastic tool to make sure you get what you deserve from your academic experience here.
Exec, Council & Liberation Elections
Again, a massive thank you and well done to all who took part in these elections!! The results were released on 23/10/2015. These positions bring forward your suggestions and their own thoughts to a professional, formal discussion that feeds into senior areas of the University. To find out more about positions that are still available, or how to get involved, drop into FXU, email us, or have a look on the website and we’ll endeavour to help you out!

I’ll be back with another update next month.
