6 commercial outlets, 62 sports clubs, 251 societies, 7 full-time Officers, and more than 25,000 members. The Students’ Union is an innovative, campaigning, agenda-setting organisation – and we’re led by YOU.
When we say that it’s your Union, those aren’t empty words. Every decision is made in the best interests of our diverse student body. What’s more, the conversations that we have now ultimately help to inform the policies, environment and conditions of the future – whether that’s here in your SU, at the University, locally or even nationally. Together, we are able to wield our collective influence to positive effect by creating meaningful change.
We need the next generation of students who are ready and willing to help set the course of their Union. We’ve already achieved a lot – the 24-hour library, reduced rents on campus and a lecture-free Welcome Week, to name just a few recent achievements. What we fight for next is up to you!
This week, students are running for a host of positions with a view to becoming one of your representatives for the coming year. They all represent different perspectives, political outlooks and views on what your Students’ Union is, or should be. Please take the time to read their manifestos online HERE and ask them questions on social media to find out what their takes are on the issues you care about.
If you feel that the Students’ Union doesn’t represent your community, your peers or your values – that’s not going to change unless you get involved.
It’s time to make your mark. Voting all takes place online, and just takes a few clicks – log in to the SU website at www.warwicksu.com/elections to have your say in how your Students’ Union is run. Polling closes at Noon on Friday, but the results of your decisions could last long into the future!
