After a successful year as Vice President Academic Quality, Lila is continuing her work as President in areas such as equality and diversity, developing the postgraduate student journey and much more.
In her role as President of JMSU, Lila will have an important role in representing LJMU students to the University, ensuring that students are heard when important, strategic decisions are being made. She is also a Student Governor on LJMU's Board of Governors.
Lila has pledged to work on:
- Saving Students Money: we know students are poor, but the prices around uni don’t always reflect that. I plan to find ways to save you money as a student at LJMU whether it’s food, travel or fun! I plan to lobby the university to improve its financial provision; from its scholarships, bursaries and hardship funds to make sure students feel supported throughout their degree.
- A Better Postgrad Experience: working with our Post-Grad Officer, the Doctoral Academy and post-grads to improve the whole PG experience, creating a better sense of belonging for PGs in the institution.
- Ethnic Minority Attainment: if you’re a student from an ethnic minority, you’re statistically less likely to do as well as your white counterparts. I have made it my priority to improve the BAME experience and tackle the Attainment Gap, making sure the colour of our skin is never a predeterminate of your success.
