Our 2014/2015 Students’ Union Officer team were awarded the prestigious Officer Team of the Year award at the 2015 NUS Awards. The award highlights the teams work in engaging with and representing all members of the student union as well as their work in highlighting and tackling issues that matter to the University community.
“They demonstrate high levels of student engagement and a commitment to student led change, as well as a strong focus and drive on improving democratic structures and addressing equality and diversity issues” Karen Mellanby, Mind
“They have worked to tackle lad culture and sexual violence and has had a theme of empowerment – in particular tackling race equality, gender equality and LGBT student groups.” Abby Young-Powell, Guardian Education
“Being considered nationally by NUS as the Officer Team of the Year is incredible, and I couldn't be prouder today to lead our Union. The award, however, isn't just about the elected Officers; the work we do isn't possible without the incredible drive and effort of our staff, student leaders and the entire student body.”
Jordan Kenny, SU President
