The Union is governed and strategically led by its Board of Trustees. The Board is responsible for ensuring the effective day-to-day management of the Union, setting long-term goals, setting operational policies and managing risks. The Board has ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of an organisation, ensuring that it is well-run and delivering its charitable objectives. Find out more about who sits on the Board and what they do.
Trustees are appointed according to the rules laid out in the Union’s Articles of Association, with students directly electing the seven Sabbatical Trustees via the annual elections in February / March every year. Trustees provide regular reports on their activities to the Union’s Student Senate, with Sabbatical Trustees being held being further accountable via the Student Senate Scrutiny Committee.

Student Written Submissions
The Student Written Submission is a document produced by the Sabbatical Officer team which offers a series of recommendations to the University with respect to all areas of student life. It allows the Students’ Union to put to use all of the feedback collected from students throughout the academic year and make the student voice heard.
