Anvee Bhutani ensures to increase funding and accessibility at the varsity
Anvee Bhutani, a student of Human Sciences at the Oxford University has been elected as the president of the varsity’s student union.
Bhutani, who is of Indian origin, is a student at Oxford’s Magdalene College and was declared president on May 20. The byelection was conducted after another Indian-origin student Rashmi Samant resigned.
"One of my main priorities would be increasing funding to welfare as well as extending its accessibility to suspended students. I would also like to leverage my student press experience to be able to increase transparency around the SU. This includes publicising better the types of motions that are passed at student council and big decisions that are made by the trustee board”, reads one of Bhutani’s social media posts on the election.
Bhutani ensures to prioritise diversifying the curriculum. She wishes to help her varsity recover post-pandemic and prioritise the needs of the students that have gone unnoticed during the pandemic, while delinking welfare services and disciplinary procedures that have not yet been implemented.
The student newspaper at the varsity said the voting had the highest-ever turnout for a byelection and has surpassed the turnouts in several past leadership elections.
As many as eleven students ran for the leadership election which also witnessed the highest number of candidates ever in an Oxford SU President election.
