Vice President Welfare

Hey Everyone, I’m proud to be YOUR VP Welfare for the coming year. For those of you experiencing college life for the first time, welcome to MTU and enjoy it as it will be the experience of a lifetime and for those of you who are returning for a second or subsequent year, welcome back. 

I just finished my degree in Information Technology. I have been involved with the Barrier Free MTU Society where I helped to raise awareness of the effects of Disabilities on Students.

The Students Union represents the 8000 students of MTU and we are here to help you during your time here. If you need help, just pop in to the Student’s Union Offices and we will lead you in the right direction (Covid restrictions allowing). We work for YOU.

As Vice-president Welfare, I will run various Welfare Campaigns throughout the year including S.H.A.G. (Sexual Health and Guidance) Week, Body and Soul Week, Exam Destress Week and Safety Week to name a few. I’m also going to run smaller campaigns like International Women’s Day and International Day of People with Disabilities.

To help you with your Sexual Health, I have a supply of condoms in my office for students that may need them. Condom use is very important as they prevent Sexually Transmitted illnesses and Unplanned Pregnancies. I have a wide range of information leaflets in my office about many different problems like Domestic Violence and Accommodation. 

While I am always willing to talk to people about their problems, I have to make you aware that I am not a trained councillor. I will listen and offer the best support I can and I will be able to refer you to extra assistance if needed.

My aim for the year is to ensure that your experience in MTU is a happy one and a safe one. The best way to do that is to let you hear as many sides as possible to the important issues in society today. The best advice that I can give to everyone in CIT, whether you are starting college or returning, is to Be Yourself. 

I want to wish you the best of luck in your coming year here in MTU and I look forward too meeting you all.

Best of Luck,

MTU Cork SU Vice-president Welfare
