LeadLUU is the name of our annual Student Executive leadership race, which is the second – and biggest – opportunity in our series of annual elections here at the Union. It’s one of the largest student elections in the country, and is a pretty big deal in the Leeds campus calendar.
In short, students are invited to run to join the Student Exec, either as a sabbatical year during their studies, as a placement year, or after they have graduated. Any student, no matter their level or programme of study, is eligible to run.
The Officers work together to lead the Union for a year, deciding its direction, acting as trustees, and representing the voice of over 36,000 students in high-level decision making at the Union and University. Hence the election’s name – LeadLUU winners will literally lead LUU for a year.
