ABOUT ME

Hello! I’m Katie, your Undergraduate Access, Education, and Participation Officer for 2024-25. Before this role, I studied geography at Sidney Sussex College, focusing on cultural and film geographies. I also served as Access Officer for Sidney JCR, the Cambridge Union, and the Geography Society (CUGS) - I’ve dedicated much of my time at Cambridge to improving accessibility and I’m excited to continue this work with the SU!

My overarching priority for the coming year is to ensure that students from all backgrounds receive support at every stage of their Cambridge journey, from application to alumni. This encompasses reforming the SU Shadowing scheme, campaigning for a standardised bridging week across all colleges, and implementing a food bank system to support students through the cost of living crisis.

I also know firsthand what it's like to sacrifice free time, and often study time, to make the university more accessible, whether as a Class Act or Access Officer. Therefore, I am incredibly keen to support you in any access or widening participation work that you may undertake at your time at this university - please feel free to reach out to ask for support, or if you have any questions or queries regarding my work!
