University of Lincoln Students Union PGR Officer
“This term I’m focusing on employment rights for PGR students who work for the university. Our first step has been in establishing a meeting between UCU and the Students’ Union, which will be happening this month- we have also begun to raise issues such as training needs, with the university. If you teach/mark/demonstrate for the university and have any issues, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m also continuing to work on developing an online community for PG students- to that end, if there’s anything you’d like to see from online PG community, get in touch with me on the above email. In terms of community, they’ll also be another PhD in the pub session coming soon- keep an eye on your emails for the details.
Finally, I’ve been made aware of issues for research students who are also distance learners, and am working with the SU to look at improving both how the SU and the Union supports their learning- if you’re a distance learner and have any thoughts on this, please do email me
All the best,
PGR Officer, Lincoln SU”.
