No matter what, you can submit your issues/ideas online using our ideas page, where we collect student opinions and bring these to Union Council, made up of our Elected Officers, and Union General Meetings, our all-student meetings, for students to vote on. Even if you don’t have a solution, we bring issues to students to help decide on what actions to take to help make change.

We run a variety of campaigns through the year, from ongoing campaigns such as our free period campaign to fight period poverty, awareness campaigns such as Movember, anti-discrimination campaigns like #NeverOK, and officer-led campaigns like the anti-racism campaign Be Better Do Better. We start campaigns based on the issues students raise, so if you’d like to start a campaign submit an idea here!

Elected Officers are student representatives, elected by students, to hold the university to account, to lead campaigns on issues that matter to them, and fight for student interests. We have five Full-Time Officers, also known as sabbs (Sabbatical Officers), who take a sabbatical from their studies to represent students, attend meetings with the university, and campaign more regularly. You can find out more about these officers and what they do here. Part-Time Officers are current students, who volunteer their time to fight on issues based on their role. You can find a full list of these here.


What we do//

Student Voice is about ensuring that all students are being heard by the university, and able to make change to their student experience. This may be on issues that directly affect students in their degrees, such as early deadlines on an assessment, or it may be issues that affect students as people, such as racial discrimination. Through campaigns, democracy, and representation, we want to empower students to make change for the better. Our Student Voice Representatives scheme ensures students on every course have a rep to take academic issues to the university and improve their course, while our Elected Officers hear from you in all-student meetings about the broader issues that matter to you. We run student-led campaigns on issues such as sustainability, sexual violence, and LGBT+ History, to raise awareness of issues that matter to students and make the Keele community a better place.

Campaigns are how you make change to your community, both in Keele and beyond. All our campaigns are student-led, and include supporting students through the Cost of Living Crisis, to promoting Societies at Keele, to Keele SU's anti-racism campaign Be Better Do Better.

Officers and Delegates represent students at Keele. Officers work full-time at the Students' Union, taking a break from their studies, while Delegates represent students alongside their studies, and it's the responsiblity of Student Voice to support Officers and Delegates to run campaigns, decide Keele SU policy, and lobby the university to improve the student experience at Keele.

Elections are how we elect those Officers and Delegates to lead and represent you! We run elections for our Officers in February, and Delegates in April and October. Our elections page is where to go if you'd like to put yourself forward, vote in an election, or simply find out more.

Have Your Say on issues that affect you! From small things like the sauces that come on our chips, to how the university should make campus safer for you, let us know how you want to make a change. All submissions are taken to students to vote on, to make sure that we're led by you.

Networks are new for 2022/23, and are our way of making sure that students from liberation groups (such as women, students of colour, or students with disabilities) are able to run campaigns on issues that affect them specifically. Anyone who identifies as part of these groups can get involved as much as they want, and you can find all of our Networks and how to get involved on our Networks page.

Student Voice Representatives are our academic representatives - students who, alongside their studies, meet with their school to fix issues that affect their course, their school, or even the university on an academic basis.
