Bilal Ijaz

GSU President

I’m Bilal Ijaz and GSU President for the year 2020-21. I will be working on making our International students feel like home at Greenwich and GSU. 

 

 
Mayo Femi-Obalemo

GSU Officer

Heeeyyyy! I’m Mayo. My journey started as a programme rep and Medway student - now I see my role as an opportunity to make changes and better the lives of students and of course to put Medway on the Map!

 

 

 
Zoë Campbell

GSU Officer

Hey, I'm Zoë, the girl with the wild hair and creative flair. I love students, chatting to you all and learning about what you're passionate about. I'm always happy to hear from you, so drop me a message or come find me in Dreadnought, I practically live there! 

 

 
Niel Lewis

GSU Officer

Heyo, I'm Niel! I'm an international student from Guyana! I love a game of chess & a discussion about the politics of the day. My favourite places on campus are Lower Deck and the Library. Two things I'm passionate about are sustainability & social policy.

 

 

Officer campaigns

Discover some of the key campaigns run by the GSU officers.

#GreenwichCares

Show that #GreenwichCares by following the current COVID-19 guidance on campus. Much of this is outlined by the government, so bring a face mask, use the hand sanitiser provided and give each other space. 

Share your photos with your face mask #GreenwichCares.

 

This is where I study

Zoë's campaign This is where I study highlights that whilst we are studying from home, not all of us have a perfectly instagrammable bedroom. Let's not be afraid to show 'This is where I study'. Take a picture of where you study and share it with Zoë on Instagram with the caption 'This is where I study'.

Decolonising the curriculum

"For us decolonisation means acknowledging structural issues that act as barriers to some students achieving their version of success, accessing opportunities, and being able to fully engage with University. We feel it is necessary to work to remove these barriers at Greenwich to ensure every student feels they can achieve what they set out to, and to ensure that once we graduate we can consider how to be more inclusive in our work." - GSU Officers
