Megan studied English and Media Cultural Studies at LJMU and was President of our Vegetarian & Vegan Society.
Now in her second year as Vice President Community, Megan will continue her work to make sure that LJMU students feel happy, healthy and safe during their studies. She will continue her work on improving accommodation, safety and transport and will be the face of LJMU students for the local community, local councils and national government.
Megan has pledged to work on:
- Introducing an accessible Student Shop on campus which would sell a variety of essential items from academic to accommodation purposes at student-friendly prices.
- Increased support for students with hidden disabilities (e.g. ADHD, Aspergers, Crohn’s Disease, Anxiety, etc.) by evaluating how these students are identified in the system and what steps are taken starting at enrolment to beyond graduation to ensure they aren’t disadvantaged.
- Ensuring there is effective support and advice to students regarding substance abuse (drugs, alcohol, etc.) and work to put in measures to increase student nightlife safeguarding such as spike-prevention tools.
- Lobbying for more funds to be allocated to increase the capacity of mental health services across University, lowering waiting times and signposting.
