for Vice-President Postgraduate Education and Access
My Pledge: The Creation of a Graduate Student Union
Graduate students are underrepresented within the decision-making bodies of Oxford University and it’s time for change. Upon successful election, I pledge to create and build the Oxford Graduate Student Union.
My name is Nick Harris (He/ Him) and I am an International Relations student at New College passionate about amplifying your voice. I am a shameless idealist and believe that "big ideas" can change the world. I firmly believe that a graduate student union is the change needed to restore legitimacy in Oxford student politics
Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) are principles that should be at the foundation of any community. Working in consultation with the graduate student groups, the principles of EDI will guide my advocacy in committee spaces to ensure equitable, diverse and inclusive outcomes.
As a student with a non-visual disability, I hope to bring lived experience to advocating for postgraduate students at Oxford. Through previous experience leading other student unions, I have been trained in active-listening, survivor-centered and trauma-informed approaches to student support.
