Your Elected Officers

Our four Staffs students, much like yourself, are elected to lead and shape the direction of the Students' Union.

They are creating game-changers on the issues that matter to you! So if you see them out and about, why not stop them for a chat, or add your big ideas to our online Better Staffs Forum.
