There are thousands of students, across the University, representing you. 

 

From Programmme Representatives working at the local level within Schools, to Sabbatical Officers who take a paid break from their studies to work full-time for a year representing students' views to the University, there's always someone available to communicate your views to relevant staff within the University.

 

 

 

Each year, you elect five students who take a break from their studies to work full-time leading the Students' Association and ensuring students are represented at the highest levels of the University. 

 

 

Your Sabbatical Officers for 2020/21 are:

 

  • Ellen MacRae, President (president@eusa.ed.ac.uk): While all the Sabbatical Officers work closely with relevant University staff, the President often acts as the University’s key contact within the Students’ Association. As President, Ellen sits on University Executive - the University’s management forum - where she’ll ensure students’ voices are heard on the issues that matter to them.
  •  
  • Rachel Irwin, Vice President Activities and Services (vpactivities@eusa.ed.ac.uk): As VP Activities and Services, Rachel’s remit includes student-led activities like societies and volunteering groups, as well as the Students’ Association’s commercial services, including our bars, cafes, and shops. She leads on the development of these areas, ensuring we’re responding to students’ priorities, and also supports our Activities Representatives in their work.
  •  
  • Amanda Scully, Vice President Community (vpcommunity@eusa.ed.ac.uk): Amanda’s role as VP Community includes many of the issues that affect students’ outside of the University including housing and transport. She’s also the Students’ Association’s lead on sustainability, and works closely with the University’s Social Responsibility and Sustainability department.
  •  
  • Fizzy Abou-Jawad, Vice President Education (vpeducation@eusa.ed.ac.uk): As VP Education, Fizzy is responsible for representing students on issues of learning and teaching, from assessment and feedback, to issues like lecture recording, and ensuring students have the opportunity to shape their academic experience at Edinburgh. Fizzy is also the key Sabbatical Officer contact for our Programme and School Representatives.
  •  
  • Niamh McCrossan, Vice President Welfare (vpwelfare@eusa.ed.ac.uk): Our VP Welfare Niamh is the Sabbatical Officer lead on all issues relating to students’ welfare and wellbeing, from mental health to sexual violence, as well as issues of equality, diversity and inclusion. She is the key contact for our Liberation Officers, and supports them in their work.

 

Any student can contact the Sabbatical Officers to ask a question, raise a concern, or escalate an issue. However, if you're getting in touch about something which relates to a specific School or community of students you should consider whether one of the Elected Representatives listed below might also be able to support you.

 

 

 

Our five Liberation Officers represent marginalised communities of students, and those who experience oppression, both in Higher Education and wider society. They lead our five Liberation Campaigns which you can find out more about here.

Within your School there are Programme Representatives working at the most local level of the University to ensure that student feedback is communicated, and supporting the enhancement of teaching and learning on individual courses and degree programmes.

If you are unsure who your Programme Representatives are, contact your Programme Director or Course Organiser. You can also email reps@eusa.ed.ac.uk.
