What?

An international committee member is a representative of the International DO; encouraging engagement, helping the International DO with their strategic plan, and working collaboratively with other committee members throughout the year. It is a volunteer position that requires only a few hours per week, however this may be more when international events are being hosted. We

Why?

As International DO, I am passionate about developing two key areas of the student experience for our international students.

1 - Promoting the emotional and practical support for our international students - it is vital international students find their home away from home whilst at Loughborough.

2 - Increasing the participation of our international students across all Union sections, e.g. Action, Employability and RAG, as well as cross-collaborations with other sub-sections under the Welfare & Diversity umbrella.

 

If you feel like you want to develop these key areas of the student experience, and feel that you could bring great enthusiasm to the role, please apply here!!
