As Vice President Community I work to represent students on all matters regarding their relationship to the wider Edinburgh community. This includes coordinating and leading campaigns and also informing University strategy on a wide range of issues that affect students as local residents, such as housing, transport, environmental sustainability, and social responsibility.

  • I'm Amanda Scully your Vice President Community for 2020/2021. I studied International Relations and grew up in New York/New Jersey and am always keen to chat about how much I miss Trader Joe's and my love for the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen.

     

    During my degree I've been involved in many student initiatives and societies and have been inspired by the great work of student activists and local organisations. Most recently in my fourth year I the opportunity to co-direct a student-led social enterprise aiming to raise awareness on the issue of homelessness in the city, and am really passionate about housing and social justice issues. I believe there is so much to be done to foster a stronger relationship between students and the wider city of Edinburgh and I am excited to help enact some positive and lasting change. I am more than happy to have a chat about anything and always feel free to get in touch!
