vice president communities



Jamie Grant


Jamie is 21, from the Kingdom of Fife, and has just graduated with a BA in Politics.

I love Stirling because...we're one of the younger institutions on the national university scene, but this hasn't stopped us from consistently smashing expectations, delivering award-winning experiences, services and support to our students. We adapt, we innovate and we constantly re-evaluate what it means to be your Students' Union.

Favourite student moment... Getting 16 students through a 4 day flight delay in Amsterdam, whilst President of the Politics Society. It was one of those 'Oh, damn' moments where things could have been a lot worse; but the Committee and I coped well, and even won runner-up for the Wooden Spoon Award at Clubs and Socs Ball!

My manifesto summed up in three words…Going forward together.


Hi everyone! It's now been a month since I became VP Communities. Wow. I have been so busy with this massive learning curve that I don't think I have had time to breathe yet. A lot of what I've been doing is setting the wheels in motion for all my manifesto points and getting them set up, as I definitely won't have time to do it all when all the students get back.

Other than that I went to my first University Court meeting (a massive meeting with lots of important people to discuss all the changes to University funding and policy) and have been planning for Freshers and Give it a Go. There is so much to look forward to that week, and it's so much fun to see all the weird and wacky events that our clubs have planned. I have also received a lot of training about how to be the best leader and campaign organiser I can be, so hopefully everything should go smoothly for the next year. This first month has been amazing and I can't wait to see what else is coming up.

Much Love, Jess x
