If you like the bigger picture, thinking strategically, and are keen to contribute to good governance of the SU, then you could be a Student Trustee. A Student Trustee helps to ensure that Durham SU is well governed. This is a distinct role, which is different to a student representative or a student activist. A Trustee deliberates and decides with the rest of the Board about the best way to deliver Durham SU’s purpose. 

We understand that students will want to have oversight of previous results, findings of the review and information provided by the students' union about the election. As such, you can find all statements and responses from the SU here.


Complaints procedure
