Why vote for Joshua Bourne?
As president I want to work hard to bridge the gap between students and staff. I want to ensure that your voices are heard to produce a better education system. I want to build trust between students and their reps and in turn between the reps and the faculty. I plan to do this by making sure that you see the results of any feedback you give.
I promise that I will take any issue you come to me with to the highest level and keep you informed throughout the process. I know many of you have improvements you would like to suggest, and I want to hear them. Your voices matter and I will make sure they are heard.
I care about the success of this course as a successful course will make our degrees far more valuable. For this reason, I want to work with the faculty to put more emphasis on teaching and providing more workshops for the practice of academic and practical skill.
I also want to improve accountability for poorly taught modules and poor exam turn outs. To do this I will use both your feedback and personally talk with the faculty about potential changes that can make your lives easier.
As a physics student I always apply the scientific method in my work. In this position I will do the same and I will devote as much passion and effort to this position as I do any of my academic activities.
