Every year UCDSU elects nine campaign coordinators; LGBTQ+, Gender Equality, Mental Health, Disability, International, Residences, Mature Students, Diversity and Inclusion, and Environmental.
Each Campaign Coordinator, assembles a crew and works with the Campaigns and Engagement Officer to campaign on issues relating to your role.
Check out the Campaign Coordinators elected for 2020/21 👇
LGBTQ+ Campaign Coordinator
Dia dhaoibh, my name is Josh Kerr, just your run-of-the-mill quadrilingual Monaghan drag queen. I am unapologetically me and strive to challenge societal norms for the benefit of the greater good. Whip on a pair of heels and a wig and I transform into my alter ego Celtic Tigress.
My interests include fashion, EDM and eating when i really shouldn’t. I look forward to working as LGBTQ+ campaign coordinator for the year. If you see me out-and-about say hi or shoot me a message anytime, I don’t bite!
Mature Students Campaign Coordinator
I am a mature student in my third and final year of undergrad, studying social policy and sociology. I have two children in their late teens, I work as a caregiver and I have been involved with the Mature Students Society since day one of UCD.
I have enjoyed taking part in the ‘Homeless Period Ireland’ campaign, aimed at alleviating period poverty in direct provision and homeless shelters. I hope to continue that this year as part of the campaign forum and have a couple of ideas for other possible social campaigns.
Mental Health Campaign Coordinator
Hi everyone, my name is Molly Greenough and I’m your SU Mental Health campaign coordinator for this year. I’m a final year Law with Social Justice student from Boston, Massachusetts and I’m passionate about ending the stigma surrounding mental health and promoting well-being among UCD students.
Whether you’re navigating first year or an experienced PhD student, college can be an extremely difficult time even during normal circumstances. We’re living in unprecedented times, and pervasive feelings of loneliness, uncertainty, grief and fear have negatively impacted so many people's mental health.
This year I hope to promote the many resources and supports the Union has to offer, and run a variety of events to help foster feelings of (digital) closeness and spark important conversations about mental health & well-being around campus, and ways to improve the Union and University’s support system for students. I am excited for the year ahead, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any campaign ideas you’d like to see/be involved with.
Stay safe and be kind to yourselves.(Text HELLO to 50808 at anytime, day or night, for an anonymous text conversation with an HSE supported Crisis Volunteer)
International Students Campaign Coordinator
Hi, I am Liya Ye and I am an international student currently studying msc in digital marketing. I came to Ireland in 2019, spent a year in Waterford and decided to come to Dublin to study. I will try my best to help International students in UCD 😊
Diversity & Inclusion Coordinator
My name is Paula Martínez, I'm a Brazilian Ecuadorian Masters student at UCD. I did politics for my undergrad and now I'm studying Racial Migration and Decolonisation studies.
I am the new diversity and inclusion officer and I am passionate about inclusivity, representation and Decolonizing curriculums and I am very excited to be able to make UCD a more include place through different campaigns this year! Message me if you have any ideas too :)
