Volunteering for Walkaround of Campus

Posted by Thomas Ron, 19/10/2014

Hello all,

I hope term has started well for everyone and everyone is getting to grips with lectures.  I just wanted to share something the university is doing in the term that I want students to get involved in.

The university is continuing its access audit, where it sets out the university's priorities in terms of campus and how accessible it is.  As part of this, the university is going to be organsing a walkaround of campus especially in areas where there is heavy footfall to make sure that it is as accessible as possible.

In order for this to be effective we will need as many students to get involved as possible.  The university is looking for students who would be willing to give up their time to participate in this activity. 

If any students are interested, please get in touch with me via my e-mail (access@yusu.org) and please let me know.  Anyone who does so will be told the date and time.  I look forward to many students getting involved
