SU Council Elections Results Announced

You Run Your SU

All students of the University of Sheffield are full members of the Students' Union, and they set its operational, political, financial and strategic direction.

As a member of the SU, you engage in all areas of democratic decision making. Whether that is electing diverse leaders who represent your interests, or participation in decision-making through referenda, petitions, debates, surveys and discussions.

Roles on SU Council

46 Departmental Councillors act as the voice of students in each department on big SU issues. Should Wednesday afternoons be left free for student wellbeing? Should we have nap spaces in our libraries?

11 Representative Councillors represent liberation, campaigning and social groups on campus. Should more be done to widen participation on campus? Should sanitary products be free? How should funding and space be allocated to student groups?

If elected to SU Council, you will have the opportunity to lead SU Council meetings, setting the agenda and overseeing lively debate and discussion at SU Council meetings.
