Hello, my name is Catarina Fernandes Cardoso, better known as Cat. I have just finished my Mathematics degree and hope to become a teacher after my sabbatical year as CUSU President.
Along with my degree, I was involved in the Rep system to help improve the student experience. I went from being a Course Rep to being the EEC Faculty Officer and now your elected President. I am very passionate about defending your views and interests and we can work together to have the best possible student experience.
As President, Cat heads the Executive Council team, and the Students’ Union leading on Campaigns and democracy, like elections. She meets regularly with Coventry University’s Vice-Chancellor Professor John Latham and Ian Dunn, the Provost. She also represents the student voice on the University’s Board of Governors and meets external organisations locally and nationally.
