Solving problems as Subject Chair

In her role as Subject Chair for Archaeology, fourth year student Ellie March tackles a number of problems raised by students, working with the students and staff on the Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) in order to amend them. As Ellie explains, "a number of our reps will come to me with issues brought forward to them by other students, and it’s my responsibility to try and solve those in a way that’s pleasing for the student but also for the department.”

As Chair of the SSLC, Ellie strives to "create a nice informal, social, comfortable environment for all of the reps to work in…making sure that they’re comfortable with talking to their lecturers and other students … to raise any issues that might be a bit delicate, but [I] also try to ensure that they feel that they are recognised for the work that they put in.”

Solving problems through the SSLC

"[The SSLC] is a good opportunity for me to develop my skills as a problem solver."
