VP Supp​​ort​​​ - Paul Olaniyan

Hi, this year I would be leading the energetic support zone in ensuring that student wellbeing is an utmost priority. I believe students cannot enjoy the full university experience without support towards their wellbeing. This year the support zone would be focusing on ensuring that adequate support is provided for minority groups on campus and encouraging inclusivity within the student body. The support zone would be at the forefront of wellbeing campaigns all year long and is also determined to actively lead in raising awareness on vital issues that affect student wellbeing. Feel free to join us for any of our zone meetings. 


Zone Committee

​​​The Committee work part-time to support everything the Support Zone is working on, whether its campaigns, workshops or training sessions. They each​ have their own projects they are working on this year so  feel free to chat to them about all that is happening t​his year.
