Setting the priorities of your SU and Officers 2019/2020


What is it?

Passed in The Big Choice Referendum (October 2018) was the proposal for students to have direct influence over the priorities of the Officers and the Union.

Over the next two months, your SU will be talking to you, gathering your views, needs and priorities; to ensure that our work is reflecting what you want.



Why get involved? 

This is an exciting opportunity to have direct influence and say on what your Students' Union and representatives should be working on, ensuring the SU's priorities are aligned towards your needs.

What does this hope to achieve? 

  • Currently, only a small proportion of Greenwich students are actively engaged with Officer accountability and SU development.

  • The role of the SU is to represent students’ needs with Full-Time Officers in place to facilitate this at a senior, practical level within the University and SU.

  • We believe you should have the power to determine what the priorities of your elected Full-Time Officers are, as then you will hold them to account on these throughout the year.

  • To ensure we are representative of all Greenwich students, it is important that the SU goes beyond facilitating members who are currently engaged, so that activity is not limited to only the needs of these students.


Ensuring my voice is heard?

We realize that you are very busy during this time-period with deadlines, dissertations and revision for January exams.
Therefore, we have a quick and easy Student Priorities Survey you can fill out to ensure your needs, views and priorities are imputed.
