Officer Priorities


I’m so happy to be publishing our Officer Priorities. This is slightly different to previous years, which has been more about working through pledges as a to-do list. We have taken the manifesto’s we were elected on, your concerns and issues during the pandemic and the reality of our situation and evolved them into a strategy with clear themes and objectives to make a difference to your experience at the University of Exeter. Myself, Penny, Ruby and Liv are really excited to be working on your behalf and are confident that the new Students’ Guild you will see over the year will make a real difference to your lives!
