Emmanuel Haruna: President

Hi guys,

My name is Emmanuel and I am your President for this academic year. I got my first degree, in Chemistry, in Nigeria and graduated with a first-class Master’s Degree, in Oil & Gas Engineering with Management, here in Huddersfield. I am a Christian, a former athlete and a Nigerian who speaks two languages, being English and Igala. I was also your Education Officer last year and it’s a privilege to serve as Students’ Union President this year.

I am an adventurous, welcoming and enthusiastic person and I have one year to contribute my little quota to making students life and experience here in Huddersfield better. I look forward to achieving this by working with you all so please don’t hesitate to come and talk with me if you have particular interests in any of my objectives.

Beyond my specific role as President, I’m more than happy and willing to give all the support I possibly can, so feel free to walk up to me for a chat and God-willing, we will sort it. I don’t just want to be a voice for the students but a voice with the students, so don’t hesitate to get in touch and get involved.


My Objectives

Ensuring students get value for money:

  • Enterprise and entrepreneurship: Organising events as well as increasing and promoting available opportunities for enterprise and entrepreneurship
  • Facility developments: Including lockers and microwaves in all schools, improving accessibility etc.
  • Identifying additional course costs: Making sure all students have the full picture
  • Recognising the value of volunteering and extracurricular activities

Improving representation for specific student groups:

  • Care leavers and asylum seekers

Expanding facilities and support for commuter students:

  • Partnering with the University to create a sense of community on campus and improve the study experience
  • Understanding their needs and adapting facilities and the current offer to this group of students
