Benjamin Smith

I’m Benjamin Smith, your current Welfare Executive at DSU and as well as standing for re-election as your Welfare Executive, I am running to be your NUS delegate.

As your Welfare Executive, I have been:

  • Representing you: making students the focus of all developments, ensuring your voice is heard.
  • Listening to your worries and concerns and helping you resolve them, helping ensure that you aren’t disadvantaged in any way.
  • Continuing to support you throughout the COVID-19 pandemic: stating your views and needs and ensuring that the University acts for who matters - YOU.
  • Attended NUS meetings and conferences, where I have been raising student issues and concerns, as raised by you.

If you elect me to be your NUS delegate, I promise to:

  1. Listen to you and represent your views and opinions, helping ensure the NUS push the government for action on the issues that matter to you.
  2. Make sure your views are represented at a national level.
  3. Help ensure your welfare concerns, such as mental wellbeing and housing, are at the forefront of the student movement.
  4. Help get motions passed that will support and improve your university experience as a student at DMU.

If elected, I will continue to dedicate myself to supporting YOU, your welfare and student experience, as #ItIsYouWhoMatters
