Oisín Hassan

Hi! I’m Oisín Hassan, a Postgraduate in the School of Law. If elected your next VP Equality and Diversity I want to see the adoption of Liberation Officers, student campaigning on Marriage Equality, increased awareness around intolerance, and greater integration of our diverse international students. As an LGBT+ activist I’m passionate about the change needed in our society, and I will be a tireless advocate for that change. Marginalised groups should not have to wait any longer for equality, and it is our Students’ Union that can and should lead the fight to achieve it.

Nicole Quinn

My name is Nicole, I am a PhD student from the School of Sociology and I’m running for VP Equality and Diversity. I have decided to stand for election after representing students in my School and to the PG Forum. I would like to see a University where equality of opportunity is real and available to all students, no matter their background. While I want to represent all students, I would like to improve the student experience of those vulnerable students who are more at risk of dropping out (parents, working-class, disabled) by campaigning to extend the support available.
