Anyone can come to Student Voice, but each year we elect and appoint
Student Voice Members. They’re responsible for coming to all three
Student Voice meetings across the year and speaking or voting for what
they think will best benefit students.
Anyone can become a Student Voice Member, and it only requires six
hours of your time a year!
How do I become a Student Voice Member?
You can nominate yourself for an undergraduate or postgraduate place
in the September elections.
If you hold a representative role within RUSU (e.g. Senior Rep, SLR
committee, Activity Group committee), you may be able to be appointed
to the role.
What’s it about?
Once a term, we hold a Student Voice meeting, which is your chance to
choose what RUSU should work on, find out what the Full-time Officers
are up to and let them know your thoughts or concerns.
Student Voice Members come from different areas of RUSU, from
committee members of Activities groups, SLR committee members, Senior
Reps, Part-time Officers and Full-time Officers. The role exists to
represent the wider University of Reading student community. Some
members are also directly elected into the role by the student body
during the Rep Elections in Autumn.
Student Voice Members aim to raise the views and interests of the
community while at Student Voice – they’re not just voting or speaking
with themselves in mind, but also the people they’re representing.
Student Voice Members are able to vote in the Change It ideas section,
and receive training to help them understand the processes.
If you’re at Student Voice and not too sure what’s happening, find a
Student Voice Member to help you!
Interested in the role? Nominations open on 20th September
