Hey, I'm Toby, your External Campaigns Officer.
I chair the External Campaigns Subcommittee
, which organises the campaigns that the SRC decides to run. This has historically meant organising around issues like tuition fees, but remains inclusive of any campaigns students want - something I really want to expand upon this year.
Along with my able subcommittee, I will be active in supporting and enabling student movements and campaigns through any means available, providing advice on how to run a successful campaign. In addition, we aim provide transport to larger demonstrations outside St Andrews when the opportunities arise.
I want to make sure that all members of the St Andrews community get the support they need to make their voice heard on issues they are passionate about, and I want to help get the wider student body as involved as possible in these movements.
Any students with a particular campaign they think the union should be involved in, or who want advice or assistance in running their own campaigns, or, indeed, just want to learn more about the role, committee, or student activism in general, should contact me at email@example.com.
