Matters Arising 

Security Points 

  • Discussions of the Name of Security:  

  • Karina opens with the suggestion that security is renamed to Security and Safety, to make it more open to students.  

  • Does introducing the Security members on a personal level to students cause more advantages or issues? Henry explains how this was the topic of a previous meeting.  

  • They probably won’t change the name. Security is here to do a patrol, the number one objective. Would be nice to make the attempt to talk about the name of security.  

  • Students and Security should have good communication, Security is here for students.  

  • See the feedback from students on the idea.

Daye:

Adam:  

  • Authorised launch of (-). Major meeting with all the execs on the 24th, girls’ rugby has grown significantly since last year.  

Toby:  

  • Spoken to Brooke and discussed ways of promoting environmental resources to students digitally, through Instagram. Need to discuss things further. Also need to speak with Henry further on enacting some of what was mentioned throughout Christine’s Report.  

Zaid: 

  • Focusing towards, infrastructural changes within the medical school, the Covid measures that overtook the medical school that is negatively impacting learning are not showing signs of going away, simply because of how convenient it is to the medical school. The unprofessionalism system is too general across the actions that take place, the student support system needs to be referred to by students in Buckingham. Figure out what’s happening in Crewe, and make the students feel a part of Buckingham.  

 

Notes: Brandyn did not turn up, so he will receive a strike as he did not give any reason for his non-attendance.
