Rachel McCartney

Hey everyone,

My name is Rachel McCartney and I am the President of WITSU. I am delighted to be your WITSU President this year. My main goal this year is to ensure that WITSU is accessible, visible and represents you as students. 

As President, I am the Chief Spokesperson of your organisation. My main tasks within the role are; managing the union finances, working on the formation of the TU, representing all students within WIT,  leading and organising the WITSU Executive, lobbying the Institute for better services, the Government for lower Fees or Student Accommodation.

Our roles will be very interesting this year as we are not only exiting a global pandemic but also in the process of becoming a TU. This is an amazing opportunity to ensure that the students’ voices are heard and represented during this transitional time. As president I want to ensure that students are prioritised and will make sure that we have innovative ideas to give you a great experience. 

I want to wish you all the very best for this academic year whether you are a first year or returning student. Look after yourselves and if there is anything my team and I can do don’t hesitate to reach out. I look forward to hopefully seeing you all !

Rachel McCartney
