Serena Millen (Access Officer):
I’m Serena, the Access Officer for the JCR Committee. I applied for the role as I’m passionate about access work and have been involved in access and admissions both at St Hilda’s College and in the wider University during my time here. Oxford obviously still has a long way to go in terms of access, however there are many students who are involved in helping to increase diversity and equality here.
My main focus for this year is to connect students at St Hilda’s with access roles both inside and outside the college. We have a College Ambassadors who help with inbound and outbound access work such as Open Days and school visits. There are also University Ambassador roles if you’d like to get involved in access beyond the college. I’m keen to increase the presence of St Hilda’s in the Oxford access community this year and I am currently working with the St Hilda’s access team to ensure that anyone wishing to get involved has the appropriate training for access work. I’ll be posting on the JCR page and emailing about opportunities to get involved this year so keep a look out!
You can also email me if you have any questions, queries, or suggestions about access work!
