Did you know that you are a member of the Arts SU? Did you know that your SU is independent of the University and that our priorities, direction and political stances are decided by you? 

Students' Unions exist to represent the student voice at their institutions. As UAL students, you have the power to make the decisions and set our aims and priorities at Arts SU. You should always be at the centre of everything we do - if we don’t represent you and your interests, then we are not doing our job properly. 

We know that our current procedures can be pretty complex and confusing. No one would judge you for thinking that you need a lot of former experience to get involved or that doing so would be a huge commitment of your time. We know that it isn’t always obvious what we’re doing, and that the language we use can be alienating. So maybe it’s time we switched it up? 

This year, we are conducting a review of our democratic processes to find out what you want democracy at Arts SU to look like, and to make it easier for you to get involved with our projects. We know we need to change to meet the needs of our students, to make it easy for you to raise an issue or create change. This is our chance to address the issues in our current system, wipe the slate clean and build something even better. 

We want you to have more input, but we need to talk to as many of you as possible to make this happen – and if you don’t engage or think we do any good, then your voice is all the more important!
