Bob is completing undergraduate study this year, with majors in Psychology and Sociology. He will be doing Psychology Honours in 1970. Although not previously involved in student politics, he feels confident of successfully meeting the demands of this portfolio.
I am a Ph.D. student in Physics with a B.Sc.(Hons.) and have also done some work for a B.A.
I have a record of service on student committees including the Maths and Physics Society and S.C.M. execs and the Science Club) Committee. At present I am on the Interdisciplinary Activities Sub-Committee of the Professional Board as a Student Representative.
The Education Officer is going to have to look outside the University as much as inside in the future. We cannot get very far in improving the Education we get here without taking part in the political activity involved in decisions, both affecting the Universities and in the wider area of Education.
On Exec in general, there seems to have been little confidence in recent Execs by student. Exec always seems to be following student opinion and action. I will do my best to make Exec a place where ideas come from, not where they get lost.
