Students' Union mission statement:
“Our aim is to be where you, our students, are. We want to be right at the heart of student life, representing, supporting and involving all of you, when you need us.”
The Students' Union is the recognised voice of student representation at the University of Nottingham. An independent charity - separate to the University - the Students’ Union creates positive change to improve students’ lives within the University through partnership working, lobbying, and campaigns.
Any student who has something that they would like to see improved at the University can make their voice heard using the established structures and support processes within the Students’ Union – including course reps, committees, campaigning groups, elected Officers, and union policy.
The University of Nottingham values the work of the Students’ Union and the representation it provides is highly influential in the decision making of all aspects of the institution.
The elected Officers of the Students’ Union sit on every major decision-making body that runs the University, including the University Council, University Executive Board Committees and working groups on every aspect of teaching, learning and the student experience.
The Students’ Union is never afraid to challenge the University where they believe students want something changed and works to empower students so that they can make their points positively, respectfully and with impact to effect real change.
