How will this year's Exec Elections be different?


This year, the appointment process for our Section Chair positions (including Action, Enterprise, Media, Rag and Societies) will be completed via interview rather than a student vote.

In addition to this change, we are also asking that all nominations include a 250-word manifesto which addresses the following three themes:

  • How can LSU develop and support new student opportunities that are diverse and inclusive? How will you contribute to this?
  • How can LSU empower representatives to be change makers at all levels within the University and the Union? How will you lead by example in this?
  • What legacy do you plan to leave at LSU? How will you ensure that you make an impact in the role, and lay strong foundations for the future?

When do nominations open?


Nominations will open on Monday 31st January and close on Monday 21st February.

When does voting open?
