FXU President Community & Welfare
Hello my lovelies,
I’m Harry Bishop, your FXU President Community & Welfare, which is a dual role. The first half of my role is about supporting the ongoing development of our already amazing university, local and national sense of community, and citizenship. The second half of my role is about making sure that you know I’m there for you whenever you need me.
Over the next year I’ll be working with you on what I think are some really exciting projects! Such as working with the Student Support Services to bring you the best quality wellbeing support, making sexual health and screenings a priority, helping you get involved with FXU RAD (Raise & Donate) which is FXU’s main arm of fundraising – giving you the opportunity to volunteer here and abroad, and working with our equality, liberation & faith committees along with community groups to bring you loads of exciting, moving and diverse events. We’ll support you as you transition from home to university, from finance to food to accessibility and inclusion. We’ll also ensure our staff are properly trained in how to support you.
Your time here at Falmouth University and the University of Exeter will hopefully be an absolutely incredible experience, but it might be tough at times too; whether its housemates ‘borrowing’ your milk, having to learn how to use a washing machine, or something more serious than that, we have a variety of support systems and networks to help you, and that includes me! My job is to support and look after you, no problem you are having is ever too big or too small. That’s why I have an open door policy. If you’re ever in need of somebody to talk to just send me an email or come into the FXU office and we can have a chat over a cup of tea (and cake!).
