JCR Committee 2023-2024
Abi Edu – President
My name is Abi, and I am one of the few Fine Art students here at Worcester. As the current JCR president, my primary role is to act as a bridge between the students and the staff by representing the interests of all undergraduates. I also manage the rest of the JCR committee. Attending meetings is an essential part of the role. I go to discuss topics like fair rent prices, to keep the provost updated, to speak with the greater Oxford student president body, and to catch up with the rest of the committee to find out what they have been doing on a biweekly basis. I place importance on inclusivity and encourage it through events to mix year groups, cultures, genders, etc.

Chiara Stark – Faith Rep
Hiya! I’m Chiara, the Worcester JCR Faith Rep! Since this is a new role, I’m still figuring out what this actually means, but basically, I’m here for any religion-related queries, or just a friendly chat! College is an amazing place to meet new people and try new things, but it can all get quite overwhelming, between suddenly living by yourself on top of the work and the socials. I’m here for when it maybe gets too much to juggle everything alongside a healthy interior life. Anything from alcohol and sex before marriage to how to be more loving to your peers, I’m here to listen and figure things out with you, rather than impose something on you – we can work through any worries together!
