My name is Mary Hernandez and I am your Vice-President for Equality and Welfare for the 2019/2020 academic year. My role is largely to help and guide students during their academic year. This includes helping with difficulties regarding accommodation, SUSI, crèche and accessing counselling services. I will also be running events for different causes, e.g.: Freshers Week, SHAG Week, RAG Week and many more!
This role also focuses on equality. This means that every student has the same equal opportunities and that everyone is treated fairly and equally. Here in LYIT we accept everyone’s background and we want all our students to get the same experience as everyone else.
Please do not hesitate to contact me. If you need some advice in any of these areas or have any welfare or equality related problems, then drop into the SU office!
