Hi, my name is Jacob May, and I am the UOW LSS Vice President for Education for the 2021 term. My pronouns are he/him.

I am currently completing my fourth year of a Law/Arts double degree, majoring in Japanese. My interests include linguistics and the way language shapes the law. I am also currently studying Norwegian, and wish to go on exchange in order to improve my proficiency.

Recently, I have been involved in administrative operations at Port Kembla Hospital, tutored Japanese, attended leadership bootcamps, and conducted research and related tasks within the Law Faculty.

As your VP (Education) for 2021, and in celebration of the LSS’ 30th anniversary, I wish to bring you all a variety of new skill-building opportunities to complement the knowledge gained in class. We have some crash-courses in the works, as well as some collaborations with the Competitions Portfolio.
As the leader of the LSS’ Wellbeing and Equity initiatives, I also hope to open up the many avenues of support available at UOW, through First Year Mentoring, the First Year Guide, Wellbeing Wednesday and Wellbeing Brunches. As a society, we have also renewed our commitment to diversity and inclusion, through modifying our procedures, and becoming listed under ACON’s Welcome Here Project.

If anyone has any questions about the Education portfolio or just want to chat, please do not hesitate to reach out. I wish everyone a year full of productivity and success!

Jacob
