Exec Officers

The Students’ Union is run by a team of dedicated Executive Officers who are annually elected by the student body to make sure your University experience is the best it can be. 


 

MEET THE EXEC



The Full-time Exec Officer team is made up of USW students that have taken a year out of their studies or have recently graduated and are responsible for making high-level decisions for the Students’ Union. They are annually elected and work a full academic year supporting activities, running campaigns and making sure your student voice is heard at the highest level.  

The Officers provide student support, opportunities, and representation. They campaign on issues you care about and lobby the University for change.

WHO CAN BE AN EXEC OFFICER?



Any student can stand to become an Exec Officer. You might want to see more student activities, or perhaps you have a passion for student welfare, no matter what your interests are and no matter what you study this is your chance to make change. Students usually stand in their final year of study, but students from any year of study can take a sabbatical and suspend their studies for a year to take up a full-time position.
