ABOUT MY ROLE
The Union President provides a leadership role in engaging and representing the needs of students at the University and will provide feedback of the students’ views to the Students’ Union at planning and other meetings to enhance the student experience. The Union President will provide support to the Vice Presidents of the Union in the fulfilment of their roles. The President is the Union’s lead representative on the University’s Board of Governors, and serves as Brighton SU’s lead spokesperson with external media. The Union President will be mandated to go to any NUS conference.
Each elected officer runs on a manifesto: a collection of ideas and policies that they promise to enact when they are in office. To help you keep track of what each of our four full-time officers get up to, and how far along they are in implementing the ideas that got them elected: we've created this handy manifesto tracker!
How it works
All of an officers manifesto points are listed below. The button colour indicates their progress in implementing each of their points. You can click on each button to see a quick log describing what each officer has done to further their goals in each instance.
