Howdy, my name is Ruairí and I'm your Students' Union President. I'm a psychology undergrad student from Clarecastle in Co. Clare.
I got involved in the Students' Union for the first time in 2020 during the protests against rent increases on campus. I was the Welfare Officer for the last year and am pure buzzed to be sticking around for another as President.
My main focus for the year is working to tackle the rampant commercialisation of the higher education sector so we can create a more accessible, affordable and welcoming UCD. If there's something you would like the SU to work on this year, we'd love to hear from you.
Give me a shout at Ruairi.Power@ucdsu.ie
