Hi! I’m Mert (he/him), I’m from Turkey and Switzerland and I am the SU Chair! I’m a second year studying Law. I enjoy playing the piano, eating hummus, and politics! At Oxford, I am mostly involved in Human Rights societies and doing legal aid work! A fun fact about myself is that I’ve lived in 4 countries! As SU Chair, my main tasks will be to ensure the proper administration of the SU, run elections and hustings, chair SU meetings, and ensure that any motions that are passed in meetings are followed through. I am also in charge of interpreting and maintaining the SU constitution and policy book. As part of the executive, I will also support the SU Pres, Vice Pres, and Treasurer in representing the student voice to OxSU and College officers!
