Aim: To challenge and support the university in its academic provision.
Why?: KeeleSU strives to see that our students receive the best academic experience possible, that prepares them for whatever step is next in their life journey.
How?: KeeleSU recruits and trains your Voice Reps in how to act as the megaphone for their cohort! Channelling all the feedback into one clear voice.
We constantly survey and research student feedback on their courses, and through our lead reps and education officer, we challenge the poorer performing areas and encourage the spread of good practice!
Your officer team, using results from the NSS, Speak Week, and other union surveys compiled a list of priorities for the university that they will work with the university in tackling this academic year.
Our education officer feeds back to you through newsletters, social media and through physical conversations, the progress of the work being undertaken and our officer team are available to contact with further feedback.
Our ASK team supports you during your time at studies, whether you are being withdrawn from your degree or need support submitting EC's , the team are happy to help students in getting the most out of their education.
Aim: To see that every person has access to the sanitary products they need.
Why?: KeeleSU believes that period products are not a luxury and should be readily available to our students.
How?: KeeleSU provides free sanitary products in a variety of forms that are available from the SU building.
Our Welfare and Internationalisation officer and student volunteers frequently pack and replenish the free products throughout the year.
Throughout the year, on relevant national events, we build the Free Periods campaign into the messaging we deliver to students.
