Campaigns Guidance

For information on how to analyse your campaign issue and develop an evidence base, develop your campaign strategy, plan & run your campaign check out NCVO's guide to campaigning & awareness and this short how-to guide for effective campaigns.

Campaigns & Liberation Advisor

The SU's Campaigns & Liberation Advisor, Sam, is based in the Campaigns & Community Office on the top floor of the Students' Union HQ. If you'd like support with your campaign, simply email sam.parr@warwicksu.com.

Social Media Groups

The Campaigning at Warwick Facebook group allows campaigners to share resources, event details, training opportunities, and calls to action. For the more logistical side of things, and to be kept up to date with the latest campaigns news, deadlines, and opportunities, join the Campaigns Logistics Group.

University Committee Structure

The university's Council and Senate committee structures are helpful to understand the flow of the business through the University's formal committee structure. There are elected student representatives on most university committees, who are able to raise and respond to issues on behalf of the student community.
