Item and context

Lead

1. Feedback from Panels: What problems have you identified with the current University & Guild structures?

Disability, BAME, International, Women, LGBTQ+, Parents & Carers, Religion & Belief, Mature Students, Low Income.

Panels 

2. TO DISCUSS: Stocking of “free from” products such as dairy and gluten free foods in campus supermarkets.

There is a very small selection and people find themselves having to leave campus to get their lunches. This is specifically a problem for people who don’t have to leave to go get lunch or can’t walk into town (i.e. people with mobility problems who rely on the campus supermarkets)

Carried over from 22 Jan meeting. 

Chair (web submission) 

3. TO DISCUSS: Accessible parking spaces to be assigned in the main Holland Hall car park. Provision for people with disabled passes to park in the quadrangle of Holland Hall for up to 1 hour at a time.

There are no accessible spaces in the Holland Hall car park based at the back of this student accommodation. Students have found it difficult to park nearest the back entrances when it is a busy day.

Carried over from 22 Jan meeting. 

Chair (web submission) 

4. TO DISCUSS: How to tackle/combat racist rhetoric on campus.

Exepose released a news article reporting a racist act of vandalism happening on campus in December time. The Guild Full-Time Officers had not been informed, and the University spokesperson simply stated that the University does not tolerate racism and discriminative behaviour of any kind. I would like to suggest we reevaluate why Exeter Uni is continually dealing with these issues and find better ways of addressing them when individuals can’t be reprimanded.
