Students' Union President
Grian Ní Dhaimhín
Hi folks! Dia daoibh!
I’m Grian Ní Dhaimhín, agus is mise Uachtarán Aontas na Mic Léinn i mbliana, and I am your Students’ Union President this year!
The Students’ Union is here to represent you, support you and fight for you. We want to make your time at Queen’s the best it can be and my job is to ensure that happens by making your voice heard in the Union, in the University and beyond.
Response and recovery from Covid-19: We want to make sure that you get the best university experience you can, even though we may be dealing with a global pandemic. We want to support you academically as much as we can, support our clubs and societies, as well as protecting your rights as tenants and workers during this time. We will do what we can to get through this together.
Action on Mental Health: Mental health is a top priority for the Students’ Union. We will work to make sure you have the support you need, help break the stigma surrounding mental health and challenge the issues that impact our mental health.
Climate Action!: As students, we will leave Queen’s to work in, change and lead a world in the midst of climate and ecological breakdown. We want to ensure our university works towards carbon neutrality, divestment from fossil fuels and embedding sustainability in our curricula.
New Students’ Union Building: We are still working on our new home, and I will be making sure it has everything students need!
If you want to find out more about these issues and other things I am working on, the services the Students’ Union can offer or how to get involved, feel free to get in touch. Send me an email, or don’t be afraid to call in for a chat!
Go raibh maith agat! Thank you!
