VP Activities & Employability

Your VP Activities is responsible for ensuring your voice is heard on all issues relating to extracurricular activities, including sports, societies, volunteering and events.


My Name is Joel, I studied Visual Effects here at LSBU. My first involvement with the SU was in my first year when I put myself forward to take over running and hosting the weekly Quiz here on campus! This year I have been working with the opportunities team to make sure sports and societies are more inclusive than ever, working with the Events Coordinator to ensure that the online events calendar was ever changing and evolving to student demand. I was limited in my role by the online working during the pandemic, but I am so excited to do the things I had put on hold this past year to make YOUR student experience outside of the classroom an immersive and engaging experience.

    What's the big idea?

    - Will launch "LSBU Belongs to us campaign" to create more awareness about decolonisation - More culturally competent and in-person "Out-of office hour" mental health and well-being support. - Will make sure LSBU campus facilities are cultural and religious friendly and non-discriminatory. -

    How will it benefit students?

    As Max(SU President) has mentioned about Awarding Gap, at LSBU, a full-time black student is 18% less likely to receive a 1st class degree than a white student. Also, LSBU has a diverse student body, where most of the students come from the BAME background. But in most of the degrees (not all), "White Supremacy" is still visible, whereas it is possible to reduce that colonialism. So I will continue to lobby with the university on decolonising the curriculum. Colonialism is severe during student life and in the job market, and in life after graduation. University is a place where a student can grow for the betterment. Therefore, we aim to create a space where one student can improve themselves regardless of any "pressure of cultural difference".
