Each year we ask all Sussex students to choose six students who will become their full-time representatives at the University. These six people, called Officers, become the voice of Sussex students for a year. They represent students in the rooms where major decisions are made by University bosses. They also help lead the Students’ Union for the year, and become involved in making lasting changes to the way things are run at both the University and in the Students’ Union. Full-time Officers are paid to do this job.
Working alongside them on a voluntary basis are also five part-time Officers.
Sussex students choose these leaders through a democratic process starting with nominations (open now) and then by voting (during Election Week, in March).
So, if you:
think you can help make some big changes at Sussex
love the idea of representing and helping your peers
think Sussex could be amazing and you have ideas about how to achieve that....
Go for it and run for an Officer role. We will support you through the process.
If you have friends who would be great at this - tell them to go for it by sending them an electronic postcard.
