Vice President for Welfare and Equality

Hi, my name is Caitlin Connor. Here at Dundalk Institute of Technology I studied Business and Management and as of this year I am graduating with my Level 7. I am beyond thrilled to be entering the role of Vice President for Welfare and Equality continuing on the tremendous work my fellow colleague Taidgh Kavanagh executed throughout his year within the role.

The role of VP for Welfare and Equality in the Students’ Union heavily entails the continuous support and guidance surrounding mental, sexual and physical health alongside cementing an accessible, diverse and equal campus for all our students here at DkIT. My first act of duty shall be running a ‘Return, Recover, Rebuild’ campaign aiming to shed some daily tools as to how we can all adjust to student life returning back to education after a global pandemic.

Inevitably blended learning shall be incorporated to both an on-campus or online lecturing approach. Students may struggle adapting to their temporary studying circumstance’s. Hence my initial response is to provide as much guidance, tools and support possible both online and on-campus. The core objective of the big return campaign is targeting how staff and students can combat stress, anxiety and overall hesitation in resuming an element of today’s current education climate. This is only one example of the work I propose to do this year.
