Get involved in an exciting opportunity at SUSU – Become a Student Leader!
After Union Council endorsement earlier this week, the Executive Review has now come to a close and the new exciting team of Student Leaders are ready to be elected.
Some of the Student Leaders will now be elected before Easter – With every student having the opportunity to vote on the positions. One of the biggest steers to come from Council was that these elections should not be of similar magnitude to the main elections that have just passed, don’t forget that these are voluntary roles and therefore the election of these leaders should not be anywhere near as demanding as the Sabbatical elections.
Elections Committee today has discussed on how to make sure this principles if maintained when coming to the election of the leaders.
