2018 - 2020!...
I've now come to the end of my role as NUA Students' Union President and it seems a good time to take a look back at the activities and successes of the SU during the two years that I have been in the position.
NUA Students' Union is dedicated to creating opportunities, working on the things that matter most to students, and advocating for the best student experience. I've been privileged and proud to represent you and work with the SU Administrator on the various projects, events, activities and campaigns.
There is no doubt we'd not be able to do what we do without the dedication, commitment and hard work of students who give time and hard work to helping and working with us. Throughout each year Union staff work with incredible students, Student Reps, Society Officers, Liberation Officers and the student Steering Committee. You’ve all added to the student experience here at NUA and have all been great to work with… it is hugely appreciated!
Over the past two years, the Union has achieved various goals, and made real progress on areas we know matter enormously to you. Thank you to all NUA students for engaging with our campaigns, giving us feedback, letting us know your thoughts and ideas and being a part of NUA SU. It’s down to you that the Union has achieved so much. From the both of us at the Students' Union, thank you!
