JCR Committee

This is your JCR committee! We're here to represent you to College and the outside world. Each position has a specific responsibility, so if you need help or information just browse through below and get in touch with whoever suits your needs most. If you're unsure, our president is always more than happy to help and point you in the right direction.

Getting involved

If you're interested in becoming part of the JCR committee yourself, just speak to any of us. Elections are just around the corner and you can really make a difference!

My education was interrupted only by my schooling.

President - Patrick Deady

Hello! I’m Patrick, the JCR President for 2017-18 and I study law. My role involves chairing the JCR committee and representing JCR members on College committees. The committee’s purpose is to improve college life for all undergraduates at Churchill so if you have any suggestions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email me! As mentioned in my manifesto, I plan to improve the committee’s engagement with JCR members by creating subcommittees and increasing the number of open meetings per term. I also plan to increase the number of JCR events at Churchill by instituting an Ents Subcommittee.

Please do contact me if you have any suggestions or concerns!

Equal Opportunities - Stella Swain

Hi! I'm Stella, I study English, and I'm this year's Equal Opportunities Officer! I head the Equal Opportunities Committee, whose purpose is to try and reduce inequalities within Churchill. We're a very new committee so our role is still developing, but we'll be meeting regularly to discuss proposals for how we can promote equality in areas from sexuality and gender to mental health to race and ethnicity. I'll be running events like consent workshops and International Women's Day celebrations, as well as raising concerns about equality with the JCR and Churchill College management. Hopefully, this committee will mean that as many minority groups as possible are represented, but if you have any concerns about representation/you feel like you aren't being represented then please do get in touch (my email is ss2403) - also email me with any ideas you have about projects that we could undertake! I'll update this page with the members of the Equal Opportunities Committee as soon as they have been chosen!

Domestic - Kyle Da-Cunha

Hey!!! I'm Kyle, a second year Chemical Engineer, and I am your Domestic Officer. My role and aim is to make Churchill our 'home away from home'. More specifically I am responsible for making sure that catering, accommodation and laundry are all up to a respectable standard. If you have any complaints or suggestions regarding these, it is my role to address your issues by following them up with the appropriate departments until suitable changes are made. I also sit on a number of big college committees so I can directly put forward your point to the people who can bring about these changes! So if your sweet potato mash is always under-seasoned, your duvet is of an unacceptable tog or the washing machine is making your head spin - I am the man to turn to. Just send me a message and I will do my best to improve the situation!

Green - Ben Tatman

Hi, I'm Ben and I'm this year's Green Officer. In doing this I'll be sitting on a number of committees, sending a fortnightly email regarding Green events going on around Cambridge, and trying to run Green events in college!
In college we have a Green Impact team - this is a group of people who meet up roughly twice a term to take part in projects to make the college greener. If you would like to join please send me an email! Additionally, as of the time of writing I am helping to run the organic waste scheme so if your bin is overflowing and you would like biodegradable bin bags, please contact me and I'll put some in your pidge!
If you have any suggestions as to how we could improve the green-ness of the college, please contact me! I'd love to hear about them.

Access - Katt Weaver

I'm Katt, a 2nd year PBS-er and your Access and Academic Affairs Officer for this year. Churchill has an impressive record in terms of widening participation - we have the highest percentage of state school offers of all Oxbridge colleges! However, there is always room for improvement. My job on the committee is to promote any sort of access-related activity to the student body, and to work with the College's Schools' Liaison Officer to help organise and promote a broader-based accessibility within college. I am particularly interested in ways of getting more women to apply to our college - so if you have any ideas let me know. I will be using the college's social media throughout the year to show a truer version of what life is like as a Cambridge student - if you want to get involved, just drop me a message! On the Academic Affairs side I am willing to take any complaints/suggestions to improve the academic traditions of this institution.

Equipment and Societies - Kieran Heal

Hey! I'm Kieran another First Year Phys NatSci, so I'm responsible for the general 'Equipment and Societies Brief' so if you ever need anything like Sports Equipment (of which we have a surprising amount) or more squash balls have been destroyed *Sigh*, or just general ideas for stuff that we need (namely if someone's broken something else...) Just give me a shout and I'll get right on it (within as much as my NatSci life lets me) - I'm also responsible for keeping an eye on the JCR bikes, so if you get an annoyed email about your bike being in the wrong place, that's probably me. With regards to societies I'm here to help in whatever way I can, just drop me a line - either via my email (kph26), the anonymous email to the side, via Facebook - or randomly walk into me at college (I'm not hiding I promise)
