My name is Peter Lynch and I am your SU Welfare/Equality Officer for the coming year. It is my job to ensure that students have guidance when dealing with issues regarding accommodation, crèche and accessing counselling services. I will also be organising events for Mental Health, Freshers Week, SHAG Week, RAG Week and many more for the student body.
The job of Equality Officer means I will be in charge of providing equal opportunities to all students and making sure all students have a safe space during their academic year at LYIT.
Having been a student at LYIT, I feel I am well equipped for helping the current student body and helping accommodate the transition for adults returning to education as well as the transition of students coming from second level education coming into third level.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, I look forward to meeting you all! If you need advice in general relating to college life or have any welfare or equality related problems, then drop into the SU office!
