About Me

I’m Sam, the EEC Faculty Rep for 2019/2020. I am in my final year studying Mathematics and Data Analytics.

In the past, I have acted as the voice of students in CEM as the School Rep and Senior Course Rep. It has taught me the importance of the representation system in guaranteeing the students’ quality of education. Also, helping me to acquire leadership skills and boosted my professional development. I have become more organised, motived and outgoing than ever before.

An outline of my plans for the year is as follows:

  • Network with representatives to ensure all academic issues and feedback is raised
  • Provide academic societies more support to develop and attract new members
  • Build upon the relationship students share with personal academic tutors
  • Increase communication for placements opportunities and promote STEM
  • Demand further detailed assessment feedback provided in a set time frame
  • Provide student suggestions for future improvements to Flying Start items
  • Extend opening hours in the engineering building and access to labs

Please contact me at ad2678@coventry.ac.uk if you any questions. I’ve been involved in different components of the Reps System and have most probably experienced first-hand the issues you might be facing. With your help, I will guarantee the best possible experience for EEC students.

Being a Faculty Rep

Faculty Reps lead the academic representation of students in their Faculties. They work with senior academic staff to resolve problems facing all students there. They also work with the School Reps to resolve problems raised at a School level.

Faculty Reps are invited to attend meetings of the Faculty Board and Faculty QLT (Quality in Learning and Teaching) committees in their Faculty. Outside of their Faculties, they are members of CUSU Executive, CUSU Council and the CUSU Education Committee, all of which meet regularly during term time.
