Remove the president

Anonymous submitted on

The president does not need protecting

She is a sexist and racist and is not inclusive to the white male population

If the SUSU claims to be diverse, then their president should hold these values 

She also disrespected all the veterans of our country

Her Twitter should be not be on private as a way to hide her awful views - Donald Trump is not on private

Hi Anon,

Thank you for your suggestion, and apologies for the length of time it has taken to conclude this You Make Change.

Whilst Emily's comment has been rightly criticised by students, we do have a duty of care to our staff and students to protect them from personal attacks or threats of violence. Nonetheless, the Students' Union has always been clear that we do not support Emily's comment in question as we recognise that it was deeply insensitive and inappropriate. Following on from the incident, SUSU carried out an internal investigation into whether there was a breach of our HR policy at which point Emily made the decision to resign from her post. Unfortunately due to the confidential nature of these proceedings this is all I know and this is also all I am legally allowed to disclose. We will always challenge extremist or inflammatory language where we find it, in line with our rules and procedures.

If you have any further concerns regarding this please feel free to email me at

Best wishes,

Steve Gore, Acting President
