RGU Students’ Union has today informed our members, all students at Robert Gordon University, that Katherine Corbett will next month step down as President (Sport and Physical Activity) having accepted a full time position as Sport and Physical Activity Development Officer within RGU SPORT. Katherine will therefore vacate her role as President (Sport and Physical Activity) as of 17th November 2016.
Katherine has said "This has been a really tough decision as I have loved working as President. I am delighted that I will still have the opportunity to be involved with Sports Clubs in my new role, and will continue to support students in my role at RGU SPORT. I want to thank everyone who has supported and encouraged me over the past few months. I have enjoyed every second of it. I wish the Union team and all of the clubs the best of luck in all their adventures and challenges over the year."
The President (Sport and Physical Activity) position at RGU:Union will now be included as an available elected role in next month’s Union By-Election. The role will be part-time, paid (minimum of sixteen hours per week), and is open to all currently matriculated students at RGU. The successful candidate will have responsibility for sport representation, chairing the Sports Forum, leading on physical activity campaigns, supporting Purple Wednesdays, and will be a member of the Union’s Executive Committee and Trustee Board. They will have the full support of the current Sport and Physical Activity Team, RGU:Union, and RGU SPORT.
