The Students’ Union Evaluation Initiative
The Students’ Union Evaluation Initiative (SUEI) is a national assessment model that assists in improving the services and activities delivered to members of Students' Unions by indicating areas for continuous improvement.
Having worked hard over three years to achieve this accreditation, RUSU Student Officers and staff were presented with a Silver SUEI award by David Willets MP (Minister for Universities) at the Houses of Parliament in October 2010.
This method of assessment involves almost eighty Students' Unions across the UK, who are externally assessed by SUEI on criteria such as student participation, representation, vision, management, reputation and communication. The Union's current position is determined, and then it is decided how the Union would like to move against the key lines of enquiry in order to make continuous improvement. SUEI aims to make a positive difference to the lives of students by improving the outcomes of the work of their Students' Unions, and is considered to be the mark of a good Students' Union.
