Who will be on the decision-making panel?

The panel will be made up of Sabbatical Officers, our Activities & Development Manager, our Representation Manager and an Associate Dean of Student Experience. The panel will use criteria, based on the guidance notes, to ensure the process is fair and transparent, and bring expertise to the panel to help us understand your applications as best as possible.

Some key areas that will be considered when looking at the applications will be:

 
 
1

How many people will the project benefit?.

 
2

How will it improve community feeling?

 
3

How will it engage hard to reach students?

 
4

How accessible is it to a wide range of students (eg. Disabled students, postgraduates etc)?

 
5

How well considered is the budget? Value for money?

 
6

Could it lead to any additional activity?

 
Panel members will weigh up each event criteria to judge its potential impact when building a community in their school.
