As a democratic organisation, Hertfordshire Students' Union is led by students for students. There are a bunch of ways in which you can make sure your SU truly represents you. One of the main ways is to take part in the annual Students' Union Elections. Our Elections are run so that we can elect a new team of Elected Officers each year. Your Elected Officer team are here to represent you at the highest level. Make sure you have a say on who forms that leadership team.
What are the Elected Officer positions?
The Elected Officer team is made up of four positions, each with their own portfolio of responsibilities:
- The President leads the work of the Officer team and represents students to the University and wider community
Vice President Activities
- The Vice President Activities oversees student opportunities like societies, sports, events, fundraising and volunteering
Vice President Community
- The Vice President Community works with on- and off-campus partners to develop community at the University of Hertfordshire
Vice President Education
- The Vice President Education lobbies for a great academic experience at the University
Who do the Elected Officers represent?
With a student population of more than 24,000, we need representatives who will champion the voices of around 13,000 BAME students and nearly 11,000 white students. We need candidates who will listen to the voices of more than 11,000 mature students and nearly 3,000 students with disabilities. We need a diverse Elected Officer team to represent our diverse student body.
When are the Students' Union Elections?
The Students' Union Elections normally kick off in February. More information will be released nearer the time so that you're in the know.
