Campaign officers are part-time voluntary roles. They are elected by students and work closely with the Exec Officers whilst campaigning on issues relating to their liberation groups or regions.
MEET THE OFFICERS
All Campaign Officers are current USW students, elected to represent and liberate the rights of students who are under-represented or discriminated against. Part-time Officers are also a member of Student Council, the highest student representative body in the Students’ Union, which ensures students have a say in how their Union is run.
Any student can stand to become an Officer. You might want to represent students in your liberation group, or perhaps you have an idea for a campaign, no matter what your interests are and no matter what you study this is your chance to make change. For more information about vacant positions email Rhiannon Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) or keep an eye out for SU Elections on campus.
WHAT ABOUT STUDENT COUNCIL?
As well as campaigning, the Part-time Officers also sit on Student Council. Through Student Council, they help to steer the Union in the right direction to enhance the student lifestyle.
Student Council is the main policy making body of the Students’ Union and is responsible for discussing the various issues that affect students, in order to set the Union’s overall political direction. The Council meets a minimum of five times during an academic year to make sure that issues important to students are discussed and, if necessary, acted upon.
Student Council is made up of an elected Chair, the President and Vice Presidents and Campaign Officers, who have a remit for specific campaigns. There are also a number of regional, open positions. Student Council Officers submit Policy Proposals on behalf of the students that they represent, with the aim of making the Union (and sometimes the University) a better place.
