We are your elected SU Officers and we are here to help to make your time at UWL the best it can be:
  • We work for you and are accountable to the student body
  • We are ordinary students who are elected by you to lead the SU
  • We work full-time and are available across campus.
  • We are responsible for the strategic direction of the Union
Ways we represent you:
  • University level - we sit on all the principal committees and ensure that the student voice has an input into the decisions made
  • Locally - we meet with representatives from the local council to discuss issues that affect students.
  • Nationally - as part of the National Union of Students (NUS) - we take part in campaigns on issues affecting you and future members

Who are we?
