Megan Hill - Vice President Community Engagement

Hello, I'm Megan, your Vice President Community Engagement for the 20/21 academic year. I'm now in my second term as your Vice President Community Engagement here at JMSU. I studied Media, Culture and Communication at LJMU and was previously the President of the Vegan and Vegetarian Society. I also was lucky enough to spend some time abroad as part of my studies with the LJMU Go Global team, in Connecticut. 

As Vice President Community Engagement, I'm here to ensure that students are happy, healthy and safe throughout their time at LJMU. This includes both in halls of residence and in the local communities where you live. I sit on the SUs Trustee Board, and on various committees and meetings at LJMU, with a key focus on health and wellbeing.

My priorities for the 20/21 academic year are:

Introduce an accessible Student Shop on campus

Which would sell a variety of essential items from academic to accommodation purposes at student-friendly prices

Increase support for students with hidden disabilities 

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

Ensure there is effective support and advice to students regarding substance abuse (drugs, alcohol, etc.) Work to put in measures to increase student nightlife safeguarding such as spike-prevention tools

Lobby for more funds to be allocated to increase the capacity of mental health services across University

Lowering waiting times and signposting students to the university's health and wellbeing support services.
