SU Execs are at the heart of how our SU represents and acts on students' interests and ideas. SU Exec members are made up of directly elected student members as well as Faculty Reps, Part-Time Officers and Sabbatical Officers. The SU Execs are given the ability to run campaigns, organise events, hold the Officers to account, be part of democratic processes and make change that will affect students and the wider community. As well as this, Execs meet to make decisions on policy renewals and comment on motions proposed to Student Council/ All Student Vote. The Chairs of Execs take the feedback from their Exec to Student Council.
