Senior Tutor – Dr Ian Latham
Chaplain – Paul Regan
Most people have little idea what a chaplain is and does so here goes. I’m an ordained Christian (Anglican) priest appointed to serve all members of the college, whatever background or views they may have about faith, spirituality and religion. My role in the college welfare system is as a point of contact for those who might want to talk about their course, life generally or issues like bereavement. You are very welcome to come and chat about anything and/or simply enjoy a cup of coffee. As I am also chaplain at Van Mildert, the Lead Anglican Chaplain across the university and an Assistant Priest at a city centre church, I am out and about a lot so if you want to contact me, send me an email or come and see me on Wednesday mornings from 9-11.
LGBT Students Rep – Callum Higham
Hi, I’m Callum, your LBGT Students Rep. I’m here for everyone in Trevs if you have any LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi & transsexual) related concerns. I can tell you all about the scene in nearby Newcastle, as well as the Durham LGBT Association, which provides welfare services as well as regular socials! If you ever want to chat (in confidence), need information, or someone to go to socials with then please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Find me in college anytime or send me an email xxx
Alcohol Awareness Officer -Pip Harland
Hey, my name is Pip and I am your Alcohol Awareness Officer. I’m here to offer you information about any alcohol-related questions you have. I’m the Vice Bar Chair so I know all about how the bar works and I have lots of alcohol-related knowledge. I help to run Alcohol Awareness Week with Welfare Campaigns Committee, where we provide you with all sorts of information to increase alcohol awareness. Remember, soft drinks are only 50p at the bar and mocktails and fruit juice start from 60p! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in contact (firstname.lastname@example.org) or drop by my room in college.
International Students Rep – Matt Hogan
What’s up guys, I’m Matt. As International Students Rep, my role is to settle international students into life in the UK and Durham and ensure they are fully integrated into the Trevs community. I am a source of support for international students and the first point of contact for any queries or problems they may have – whether it relates to health or welfare issues, or just where to get a good bite to eat! Through liaising with the DSU International Students’ Officer and the International Students Association, international students can meet and get to know other international students from different colleges (if that’s what you’re looking for), which provides a wider base for networking. Basically, I’m here to ensure that international students (and all students, in general) have the best university experience possible!
Students with Disabilities Rep – Shini Karandawala
I’m Shini, your Students with Disabilities Rep. My role is to help students who may be eligible for support from Durham University Service for Students with Disabilities (DUSSD). They provide help for any student who may suffer from physical disabilities, mental health problems, learning difficulties (such as dyslexia) or any other medical condition. With the help of the rest of the Welfare team, I also organise Disabilities Awareness week so watch out for that later on in the year.
If you have any questions, find me in college or drop me an email!
