Anisha Faruk | President
Hey, I’m Anisha (she/her) and I’m your SU President this year!
I ran to be your President to empower students and make sure the university can’t ignore the voices of the student body. My role involves representing students to the university, acting as a student voice on influential committees at high levels, as well as on the national stage.
My priorities for this year are access, mental health and student engagement. This coming year will be a significant one for all these issues as we’ll be helping to oversee the implementation of the University’s new access initiatives, Foundation Oxford and Opportunity Oxford; be pushing to secure funding for the University’s Student Wellbeing and Mental Health Strategy; and increasing out engagement with and support of student societies.
Brexit and changes to the Higher Education sector nationally will also be big focus areas for the SU. We will lobby the university to release as much information as they can on the effects of Brexit on students; push to protect the interests of our international students; and continue the SU’s longstanding fight against the marketisation of higher education.
I’m really excited for the coming year – get in touch if you have any questions!
