Vice President (Higher Education)

Amatey Doku

I'm Amatey, the Vice President for Higher Education for 2017/18! I care, perhaps too much, about the complexities of Higher Education policy. When I'm not doing that, I enjoy keeping up with current affairs, watching documentaries and, of course, listening to smooth jazz.

The Implementation of the higher education reforms will be a huge part of my year and I want to be building up the strategic links within the sector to cement the student voice at the heart of the national HE conversation.

Another priority will be tackling institutional racism in campuses with specific focus on the black attainment gap and encouraging the higher education sector as a whole to face up to it.

Finally: Brexit! I'll be setting out NUS's key priorities for HE ensuring that Europe and the world knows that we are open, tolerant and want to maintain key relationships
