Hi, I’m Donald Mackay, I’m a third year Law student, seeking re-election to the SRC as the College Convenor for Social Sciences.
I’ve served on the SRC for the past two years, first as School of Law Representative and now in my current position of General Representative. As a current member of the University governing bodies – Court and Senate – and a former member of the University Learning and Teaching Committee, I have extensive experience representing students on academic and other matters. I have also been an SRC Freshers’ Helper and have been part of running national lobbying campaigns on student issues.
If elected, I want to prioritise ensuring that all senior academics and staff in the College and its constituent Schools take student representation seriously and have a positive attitude towards it. I will work closely with SRC School Reps and Class Reps to deal with issues from students that are problems across the College, and need cross-College solutions, and also to see where individual Schools or Courses need to be improved.
I’m passionate about making the SRC a body that engages with students and provides a serious lobbying voice at university and national level.
Don’t be shy, vote Mackay!
