What are the Elections at Cambridge SU?

There are 2 main election cycles at Cambridge SU.

In Michaelmas we have the Academic Rep Elections and the NUS Rep Elections.

Academic Rep Elections are your chance to decide who represents you to the University on a Subject and School level. If you want to represent Cambridge on a national level, you can get involved in the NUS Rep Elections. You will decide the 6 students, who will join one of the Sabbatical Officers, to represent Cambridge nationally. They'll hold the NUS Officers to account, vote on policies, vote in the new NUS Officers and get development opportunities throughout the academic year.

Then in Lent we have the Leadership Elections and the Campaign Elections.

The Leadership Elections are your opportunity to vote in your new student leaders, or stand to be one of them. You'll elect a team of 8 Sabbatical Officers to lead Cambridge SU, represent students across the University, and campaign for student rights locally in Cambridge and nationally. Plus we have 4 Portfolio Officers up for grabs, and we'll be running the election for the University Councillor position.

The 7 SU Liberation and Issue Campaigns are run by groups of student volunteers who you elect through the Campaign Elections. Your Campaign groups create communities and lead change for certain students. The elections are specifically for the core committee members, but each Campaign has their own constitution, so other opportunities may be available during the academic year.
