4. Run a campaign
Our Political Engagement Team is here to support you in campaigning for change, whether that’s setting up a new campaign or getting involved in an existing one on a local or national level. Just contact the team to talk about your idea and how they can support you – including helping you to develop your ideas, guiding you through the Better Forums, linking you up with relevant Exec Officers and aiding with research and other tasks. As ever, the LUU team is here to help.
5. Engage with your Exec
The Student Exec are elected by students each year – in the biggest of our series of annual elections – to lead the Union on your behalf. They’re all brimming with their own ideas, but they also want to hear from you. As your elected representatives, Exec members work to improve things for Leeds students, and are always happy to hear your ideas and suggestions. Recent Exec campaigns have included Climate Week as well as a Student Rent Relief campaign during the pandemic – there’s a real variety of things that the Exec works on during their time in post. The Exec also get involved with campaigning on a national scale, including at conferences run by the likes of the National Union of Students. They bring the student voice to decision-making at the highest levels of the Union and University, so if you want your voice to be heard, these are your people.
We’re currently looking for our next Exec, with LeadLUU nominations open until Friday 4 February. If you think you could be one of our student leaders, nominate yourself today. Find out more here.
