Progress

  • The Student Rights and Wellbeing team will be focusing on wellbeing as a key objective
  • Seeking to set up a regular focus group of students, in order to continually receive feedback about student wellbeing. The aim is to find out what we can do as a Students’ Union to improve student wellbeing and how we can work with the University to improve services
  • Regularly meeting with the University to pass on student feedback and communicate changes, such as the recent planned recruitment of a BAME practitioner by the SHUWellbeing service.
  • Your SHSU Officers held a 'Mind Your Head' month in November, with events and activities focused around the Five Ways to Wellbeing, including Cake and Connect in the Hideout and free Zumba.
