Liverpool Hope Students’ Union exists to make your voice heard.
These are just some of the ways you are represented through your SU:
These posts are filled by students who volunteer their free time to work on specific areas of the SU. All of these students are elected by you to do this work. Their specialist areas include: Disabled Students' Officer, Women's Officer, LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans) Officer, BME (Black and Ethnic Minorities) Officer, Creative Campus Rep, Aigburth Rep, Mature and Postgraduate Rep, Sustainability Officer, amongst others.
Full details and how you can stand to be an Officer to follow.
Forums are being overhauled this year to make them more simple, fairer and more democratic.
Full details on the exciting changes coming soon!
They take place in cycles (3 forums for cycle, 1 cycle per term), and this is where you get to have your say on events, student campaigns, sports and society funding and SU policy.
It is also where you get to question your Sabbatical Officers about what they've been doing to represent you. If you have a question of suggestion, come along and speak to them!
Course Reps are just one of the ways that your views are represented. They are elected by course, and share your thoughts and opinions with Staff and the SU. If you have problems with your course or tutor, too much work and too little time, or just have any suggestions on how to run your classes better, talk to your Course Reps.
Course Reps are usually elected at the start of the academic year. More details to follow.
NUS is the National Union of Students. NUS don't just get you amazing discounts on travel, shopping and food, they are the national body which helps SUs from all over the country join together to campaign on issues which affect students on a national level. Previously they have organised demonstrations against the tuition fee rises, led a successful Women in Leadership initiative, and are now pushing to get students registered to vote in the General Election in May.
NUS provides the best information on living student life to the full, and their website can be found here: www.nus.org.uk
Elections are the fairest way to have your say in the SU and beyond. It means that you can make a decision about who you want to represent you. And if you think you could do it then why not stand for election? Student Officers and Course Rep elections will be held at the beginning of the academic year, get involved!
Elections for Sabbatical Officer positions will be held in March 2019.
