Meet your Students' Union 2023/24
Hello! My name is Seán Kelly and this year I will be your Students’ Union President! I’m a recent graduate of the BA (Hons) Photography degree here and I’m very excited to spend the year representing the fantastic and unique students of IADT. As President, my role is essentially to make sure your college experience is as enjoyable and stress-free as possible to ensure that you make the most of your time studying here. I manage the Students’ Union, including our student space – The Chapel. Within the Union, I work alongside our full-time officers and part-time officers. We represent you in the college as well as within the Union of Students in Ireland (USI), we run events, we run campaigns, and protests, but most of all, we are here to help.
If you need a hand with anything or even just want to chat, pop by our office at the back of the Chapel. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and I hope you enjoy your time here in IADT!
You can email me or ring my work phone if I’m not in the office: firstname.lastname@example.org or 083 017 7580

Hello! My name is Crow, and I am your Education Officer. Before starting in my role in the student union I was a student in English Media and Cultural Studies. My job is to help you with issues regarding your education and your experience. I will be around to monitor what is in your course content and to help you handle any academic hardships that might come up during your year. Part of my job will also be to help with class reps and the Class Rep Council. I am a part of all the committees regarding education, and I am always willing to help any and all-year groups with any queries and forms you need help with. I look forward to the year ahead with all of you, you can contact me through my email or work phone: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0830176994.
Getting involved in the SU is a great way to get to know people. Autonomous from IADT, the SU is affiliated with the Union of Students in Ireland (USI).
Among many, many things, the Students’ Union:
- represents the interests and furthers the rights of its membership as a whole and individually. This takes the form of representation on committees that look at anything from teaching and learning to IADT’s governing body, as well as representing individuals in disciplinary or appeals procedures
- offers advice on welfare, finances and education
- organises awareness campaigns, and charity, entertainment and social events throughout the year including a Raise and Give (RAG) event that has become the envy of colleges around the country
- manages The Chapel in the Quadrangle building as a recreational space
- facilitates clubs and societies, ensuring students’ right to form or join a group to satisfy cultural, social, sporting and intellectual needs.
The President, the Vice-President for Education and the Vice-President for Welfare & Equality are full-time sabbatical members who are elected to work for the SU as a full-time job for one year. Clubs and Societies Officer, Entertainments Officer, Mature Students’ Officer and LGBTQ+ Rights Officer are part-time roles.
