Directing a charity with a multi-million-pound turnover
The Students’ Union is a registered charity and exists to makes students’ lives better at Greenwich University, by offering services which include: representation, support, development and entertainment.
Representing nearly 20,000 student members to the University as well as locally and nationally
GSU Officers represent the concerns and views of individuals, groups or the whole student body on issues such as welfare, academic, social and financial. GSU Officers will need to work on “Student Priorities” that have been set by students for the SU to work on. Please see the 2020/2021 Student Priorities
that were identified by members through research and selection from all campuses.
Making up the majority of the Students' Union Board of Trustees
Along with three external trustees, the GSU Officers are members of the Students' Union's Board of Trustees and have legal and financial responsibilities.
Developing the strategic direction of the Union
The Board of Trustees is responsible for the broad direction of the Union and works with the Chief Executive and Deputy Chief Executive to ensure a successful long-term approach to the development of the Union. The SU is currently in its second year of the 2017-2020 plan.
Please see The Big Plan
which entails the values, mission and objectives of the Students’ Union.
