SCOTT DAWSON

COMMUNITY & WELL-BEING OFFICER

Hey everybody! I’m Scott, your Community and Well-being Officer. My role is to represent you to both the University and the wider York community. I work to make sure that you have an awesome time whilst at York and ensure that you feel included within the community. I will be doing several things throughout the year to help with essay de-stress and promoting a positive environment for you all to operate in. I’m always walking about campus all day,
so if you see me, feel free to stop me for a chat! Welcome to York, it’s going to be amazing!
