Although the wide-ranging remit may seem overwhelming, in practice it provides you with an incredible range of opportunity and the ability to focus on what is important to you.
Coming from an event organising and fundraising background I got involved in the RAG committee in my first year of uni and by my 2nd year was VP Events. I knew about this role because I not only spent a lot of time in the SU building but also worked with Beth (VP’16-17) and Tom (VP’17-18) whose role as VPC&C is to support the committee.
If you thought Oxford was all puppies and petals and parties and perfection then let me take a moment to burst your li’l bubble….
Being VPC&C gives you the ability to help move this University in the right direction. As a direct result of listening to the student voice, often through SU campaigns the VPC&C has been able to push for change.
As Vice-President for Charities and Community at Oxford University Student Union, my role is to see how we, as students, can contribute to the local community and live with others in Oxford as good neighbours.
Whenever there is an election the C&C runs the SU’s keynote election campaign and
Encourages student to exercise their democratic right….In the 2017 General Election C&C got nearly 1000 students to take part in the ‘pledge to reg’ with the winners getting free ice cream!
Veggie Pledge is the campaign run by C&C. An umbrella term that encourages students to be more environmentally and sustainably conscious, For example: meat-eaters pledge to go vegetarian some days a week, vegans can pledge to make their diet more ethical, giving up plastic bags, swapping dairy to plant based milk, joining climate action campaign groups – the list is endless and the impact is huge! In food adaptation alone Over 15,000 animal lives were spared and over 50 tonnes of Co2 saved (equivalent to flying from London to NYC 50 times!)??.
