Your Presidents are full-time, paid representatives whose job it to represent students' views and strive to improve university life.
Five Presidents are elected each year:
- President of the Students' Union
- President of Education
- President of Activities
- President of Inclusivity & Diversity
- President of Sport
Each President contributes to the Union Executive Committee (UEC) by ensuring the student voice is heard by the University of Hull, the local community and on a national level.
UEC focuses on representing students and consists of Presidents who are responsible for implementing HUU's vision, mission, values and strategy as set by the Board of Trustees.
Essentially UEC acts as the operational decision-making body for HUU. Presidents act as trustees, holding each other to account, approving small amounts of expenditure and improving the governance structures of HUU. UEC is used to support the Student Officers, increase communication across HUU and—most importantly—to represent students! When policy is passed it then goes to Union Council for approval.
GOT AN IDEA FOR CHANGE?
Submit it through Your Ideas and — if it reaches at least 10 votes in favour it will either be assigned to one of our Student Officers to work on with you or put to a vote at Union Council.
Additionally, if you have a specific issue or idea you'd like to raise, your Part-Time Officers operate across a wide of areas.
HOLD US TO ACCOUNT
As a student at the University of Hull, you are entitled to hold the elected President team to account. You can do this through the following methods:
- Talk to a Student President or Part-Time Officer and ask them to explain the reasons behind any decisions they have made.
- Read reports which outline what your Student Presidents & Part-Time Officers have done that month. If you have any questions about their reports email them or talk to them in person.
- Attend an Accountability Panel. Councillors for Scrutiny hold your Student President Team to account on the work they have done. You can attend and ask questions.
- Come to Union Council. You can ask your Student Presidents & Part-Time Officers questions on reports or motions. If you don't like their answers or do not think they are doing a good job, you can ask students to vote on motions of caution, censure or no confidence against an officer, which will give them informal or formal warnings, or even remove them from their post.
