The word 'champion' has several meanings - it can mean winner, someone who fights for a particular cause or belief, or in our own North East dialect it simply means 'really good'. Are YOU a Champion?
At Sunderland Students' Union, everything we do is for students and decided by students. We do this by having a dedicated Student Executive Team who are elected by you, the student body, to lead the organisation and make sure that your student voice is represented in the Union, within the University and more widely. They work closely with our permanent staff who provide the skills and experience needed to deliver the Students’ Union services.
The Exec is made up of 9 Officers, with both paid (Sabbatical) and voluntary (Non-Sabbatical) roles available. In this election, we will be electing our part time Exec Officers who will represent specific groups of students and campaign on issues that matter to them. We are also electing 4 NUS Delegates who will attend the NUS National Conference in April and represent the voice of Sunderland students on a national level.
Our elected Student Executive team have the power to make real positive change for students and help us to make your University experience valuable for life. They shape the future of the Students' Union, improve services for students and make sure that we are in the best possible position to listen, empower and engage with all students at the University of Sunderland.
Please note: You may only nominate yourself for 1 part time Exec position however you may ALSO nominate yourself for NUS Delegate if you wish.
