Hey everyone! My name is Edward Evans and I am your activities and participation officer (APO) for this year. I studied biomedical science here at UCLan for 3 years and became a sports volunteer in my final year.
My role is to support societies, sport clubs and volunteers as well as ensuring that there are thriving student led activities in the union providing opportunities to participate in competitive, social sports and set up, run and develop societies.
I decided to run for APO so I can represent students and voice their opinions and issues and amplify their success.
This year I want to increase student engagement in the union activities and further the impact the union has on the whole student experience at UCLan. I want to implement more fun frequent activities for everyone and to boost the hype around varsity creating a stronger sense of pride and community in our university! I will also continue to extend current campaigns and branch out into other major issues that are addressed in the BUCs #Takeastand initiative.
