When the news broke about Oli he said:oli-coles

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time this year at SUSU. I’ve worked with some amazing people over the last 12 months, and hope that the projects I’ve worked on will create positive change for students in the future. This was a hard decision for me to make.

 

Anjit will be joining David Mendoza-Wolfson, Megan Downing, Sophia D’Angelico, Ellie Cawthera, Katie Lightowler, and Beckie Thomas to make up the 2014-2015 sabbatical team. They all officially take over from July 1st 2014.
