Hi, thanks for checking out my campaign page. I am Gary from Scotland, and I am excited to be joining you all at the College of Europe for the year ahead studying in IRD!

This will be a year with lots of great moments and some challenges too, as we are already facing, but through solidarity with each other we will come through and make the most of this year.

As someone who has much experience in student and youth representation, I would like to do my bit to help by putting my ideas, skills, and experience to use as one of you Academic Reps for the year. 

I want to make sure that IRD students’ voices are heard and that you get advocacy, support, and a student experience with a strong community dimension (despite the limitations we face due to Covid19); I have experience delivering on all of these, and would be honoured to work with you, and for you, to create an unforgettable year together!

Yours aye,

Gary 🙂

As a student rep I have addressed concerns, identified opportunities to improve student affairs, and have negotiated with senior decision-makers.

I have represented students on many campus and national committees, where I am comfortable speaking truthfully but constructively about students’ affairs, but also in seeking to find solutions and opportunities for our shared campus community.

I believe that through strong but constructive, evidence-based, and idea-driven representation, we can make positive change for students. If elected, I will work with you, other reps, and staff to ensure you get the representation, advocacy, and support you need during this year.
