Hi, I'm Evelyn and I'm your Societies and Development officer for this academic year! I graduated from MMU with a degree in English. I've been involved in societies since I started my first year at MMU, and ended up becoming the chair of the Rock society and the Societies Council. Societies completely changed my experience of university and gave me a brand new family and because of that, I'm super passionate and excited to start this year. Feel free to find me on campus for any help or advice you need, or even just to let me know what amazing things you're getting up to!
The Societies and Development Officer is a role focused on representing societies and student groups to the university, local and national organisations, and lead the promotion of social, cultural, educational, religious and political activities in the Union. The Officer plays a lead role in raising the positive profile of students in the city and will work with student volunteers and campaigners to develop a strong organising culture within the Societies Council.
