Help students shape their future

10 Jan 2017

From 8 January until 17 February all students will have the opportunity to stand for a position in the Students’ Union Exec Officer elections

Students Union Exec Team 2016-17

The SU Exec officers are a team of eight full-time, paid representatives who run the Students’ Union. As an Exec Officer of the Students’ Union, students will have the chance to not only shape their own future, but also be a part of the first Exec Team that influences the Future Union building development.

The Students’ Union is asking all University staff help to empower all students to use their democratic voice – whether that’s through standing for a position, or simply casting a vote in March.

At Manchester, we pride ourselves on encouraging our students to make a difference, engage with their futures and develop leadership skills. By taking part in the Students’ Union elections, as a candidate or a voter, students will be accepting the University's Stellify challenge to develop the attributes of a Manchester graduate.

If you would like to help, here are a few ideas that will only take a few minutes of your time:
