Joel, VP Activities & Participation

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.

    • VP Welfare

    What's the big idea?

    - Welfare Ambassador Scheme for all schools - Mandatory reading week for students. - Will lobby with the university to create - well-equipped Sexual, Racial & Domestic Violence Support services for LSBU Students. -

    How will it benefit students?

    - Want to introduce Welfare Ambassador Scheme at all seven schools to promote University and other well-being and community support. I believe you would agree with me that Academic Success depends largely on the Great Wellbeing Support. - Mandatory Reading Week for all students - During this IT outage, we have seen how we had swamped by the semester one deadlines and sem 2 classes and not enough time to cover it up! Not all courses include this facility for all year students. I want to make sure all students get this service. - We currently have an anonymous reporting and supporting system for the students and staff who suffer sexual violence and hate crimes. However, a system won’t solve the issue if the support is not good. I Will lobby with the University to create - well-equipped Sexual, Racial & Domestic Violence Support services for LSBU Students.
