1. Improve your academic experience via Reps
There’s a large network of representatives working to make change on behalf of students on their course, in their school or at PGR level. These reps are recruited each year and are the student leaders with the power to change your academic experience for the better – so are the people to go to for complaints about your course or suggestions for your School. Discover your Rep and give them your thoughts, or apply to become one yourself to get directly involved in the decision making. We’ll let you know when you can put yourself forward in our weekly newsletter, so sign up for alerts if you’re interested.
2. Put forward a new policy at our Better Forums
The Better Forums are how students can formulate official policy at the Union. Covering Better Union, Better University and Better Leeds, these forums happen three times a year and are the perfect way to get involved with democracy at LUU. You can discover more about LUU Policy and get inspired to make change here.
3. Create Rep-led change in other areas of student life
We also have Community Reps, Liberation Coordinators and Activities Exec, who perform a representative and change-making role out in the community, for marginalised groups, and for clubs and societies respectively. Want to change things up? These are the students who’ll help make things happen. And just like our academic reps, you could join the team. Keep an eye out for when Rep vacancies go live throughout the year.
