FXU President Falmouth 2017-18


FXU President Falmouth


Let me introduce myself - I'm Chris, your FXU President Falmouth. I was re-elected by the student body to represent your academic experience while you study here at Falmouth. That means I'm responsible for enhancing your course experience and representing course feedback gathered from your FXU course reps at a senior level. I also represent you on the Board of Governors as the Student Governor and work behind the scenes on academic policy to create positive change to enhance your student experience! 

I graduated in 2016 from BA (Hons) Fine Art on the Falmouth Campus and practice as a performance artist and curator. My role as your President goes hand in hand with that, curating your union to have strength independently whilst performing successfully in partnership with the University.

The Falmouth landscape is diverse - it's made up of Foundation, Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Research students, and they aren't just campus-based, they now span across various partnership institutions, meaning you don't even have to be in Cornwall to be a Falmouth student!

My time as your President will be spent making sure that, across this incredibly diverse student body, FXU fully represents all students and is an integral part of your student journey! It's also my personal passion to actively help you to access and collaborate across multiple disciplines to become satisfied and employable graduates that hold the key skill of adaptability to lead and shape the future creative industries!

So please don't hesitate to get in contact with me via Facebook or email, you can also find me throughout the week in either the Penryn or Falmouth Campus office! The very best of luck for the years ahead and I can't wait to meet you, whether that be walking around the studios in the day or dancing at a Stannary event in the night!
