The Vice-President (Campaigns & Communications) is responsible for supporting the work of media organisations associated or affiliated with the union and leading on campaigns. Also responsible for alumni relations.


Hi, I'm Islay and I'm the VP Campaigns and Communications for this year. I'm originally from Chichester, in the South of England, but this will be my fourth year living in Lancaster. I've just finished studying a marketing degree and I'm interested in photography, cooking and travelling. Before becoming an officer I was the Communications Officer on the Fylde JCR and have had roles on the exec for the Marketing and Advertising societies.

My aims for the year are to carry out campaigns focused around the idea of making 'small changes that make a big difference' to student life. I want to run campaigns focused on teaching students the necessary university skills, campaigning for cheaper healthy lunches on campus and working on other campaigns such as sexual health awareness and for LGBT History Month. I also want to maintain the strong links the union has with our student media groups and strengthen the links with the college JCR officers.
