Over 1,500 students hold representative roles within Reading University Students' Union. We believe that all
of our members should have the same opportunity to be represented and engage in our elections. To demonstrate
our ongoing commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), we work to increase the diverse demographic
of students participating in our elections; either as candidates or voters.
This is the place for our members who want to lead, innovate, create change, develop skills, and meet lots of
new people. There are a wide range of elected representative roles that you can put yourself forward for,
including; Full-time Officers, PG & UG Student Voice Members, PG School and Course Reps, UG School and
Course Reps, Part-time Officers, Sports and Society Committees and NUS Conference Delegates.
