In Michaelmas Term, Cambridge SU holds elections for two important sets of positions. One of these is the positions of Academic Representatives across the Departments, Faculties and Schools of the University. All students in the University will have the opportunity to vote for who represents them on the matters that affect their course-level education. You’ll be directed to the ballot for all roles you’re eligible to vote in. For more information about standing to be an academic rep, contact email@example.com
In Lent Term, we run our biggest elections of the year. All eight of our full-time elected officers are elected. Any Cambridge student can run and thousands of students vote in these elections. The elections campaign is often covered in the student press, and the winners become the figureheads for the SU for the next year, shaping the policy priorities and campaigning work of the Union. Last year, over 5,000 students voted, with some very close elections, so the candidates have to work hard for every vote. If you’re interested in running to be a Cambridge SU Officer, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In Easter term, we elect the non-sabbatical positions on our Executive. We run cross-campus elections for four roles for particular groups of students: mature students, part-time students, students with family caring responsibilities, and “double-time” students.
This term is also when our Campaigns run their committee elections.
