The role of the President Activities is to be the lead officer for students on creating opportunities for non-academic development. They will ensure students get the best experience in areas including employability, community building, volunteering and provision of facilities. They will campaign to improve non-academic development opportunities at Sunderland and be the lead officer on all student led activities.
I always say I ran for Presidency because I wanted to give other students the great experience that I had from interacting with extra curricular activities. I think it defined most of my time at University and provided the more rounded skills outside of the educational qualifications that help to make me who I am and I'd love to pass that on to the other Students.
