About us and the Committee

Stuart Slingsby

Stuart Slingsby

President

I am studying an MSc in Global Governance and Ethics having just completed my undergraduate degree in Classics at Birmingham. As President, I want to create an SPP community in which students from all backgrounds can come together to socialise. Through this community we want to both improve university life for all involved and help others by raising money for good causes.

My aim is to make everyone’s time at UCL as enjoyable as possible - so if you have any ideas just drop me an email at stuart.slingsby.15@ucl.ac.uk

Treasurer

I’m Daniel, the Norwegian who has now embarked on a masters in Global Governance and Ethics.

I believe IPAS plays an essential part in enriching the student experience at UCL by being an arena where you meet great people, have fun and get engaged in something outside the sphere of UCL. I hope to see as many students as possible joining IPAS’ events throughout the year. See you around!

Communications Officer

Hello, I’m Mali, a British born Pacific Islander. I did my undergraduate at Sussex University and am currently pursuing a masters in Human Rights.

My interests are in environmental rights, women’s rights and policy. I joined IPAS because I wanted to engage in academic life from a more social perspective. I also see it as the meeting point for SPP students who are interested in politics and current affairs.

Our aim is to create a platform for engagement beyond going to classes and study groups. As Communications Officer, I will make sure everyone is aware of the events and talks we put on. I hope to see many SPP students joining in and getting involved.

See you all very soon!
