NUSU Statement – Daniel Wood
Newcastle University Students’ Union (NUSU) is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Daniel Wood. Not only was Daniel a student at Newcastle University, he was also one of NUSU’s Students with Disabilities Officers and President of the Disability and Neurodiversity Society. Daniel was a tireless campaigner for students with disabilities, playing an integral role in facilitating a series of positive changes over the past year. Daniel leaves a lasting legacy of a more accessible University for his peers and successors.
Beyond being an exceptional colleague, Daniel was held in incredibly high esteem across the institution and was a friend to many of us. All of our thoughts are with Daniel’s family and friends at this difficult time.
He will be deeply missed.
