Ken Harris began his term as President
WLV Alumni Association in September 2012. Prior to his appointment,
he served two terms as President of the University of
Wolverhampton Students' Union (SU), only the fifth person since
1931 to do so at the University.

proposals? Tell us using the form below.
During my time as President of the SU
I oversaw numerous projects including a complete
refurbishment of the Students’ Union on City Campus and the
re-opening of the Students' Union at Walsall campus.
The new Ambika Paul Students' Union at City
Campus won two awards at the National Union of Students (NUS) Green
Impact Awards: Most Improved Union and the Silver Standard award,
and it was also awarded Bronze Investors in People (IIP)
I was also able to successfully attract
funding to help current students,
including creating a student employability fund that
provides financial assistance to final year students to help with
their job search.
My career background is in sales and
marketing, having spent 14 years working in various telesales,
advertising and telecommunications companies. In 2007, I decided
to pursue my long-standing interest in British Sign
Language (BSL) with a BA (Hons) Deaf Studies
and History at the University. During this time I also
completed a volunteering certificate with Active
Volunteers. I am now studying an MA Conflict Studies
which I am due to complete in 2013.
I am fluent in BSL and would like to
go on to work in student employability and politics and
