Got an idea of how RSU could work better for students? 

You're the students, and the RSU is run by you, so tell the RSU what you want us to do and campaign on. 

All you have to do is submit your idea below, once submitted you have 2 weeks to first of all get 1% of the student population to vote on it (currently 80 students). Then secondly, 50% +1 of those who voted to vote in favour of your idea. Once you reach the required number of votes, SUC will review the idea and vote for it to become Policy of the RSU. It's that simple!!!

Once Policy, the RSU will campaign, lobby and if we can, enact your idea, to try to improve student life here at Roehampton.

Watch the video to find out how the Ideas page works! 

 

So, what are you waiting for?

    Students' Union to introduce a full time Sabbatical Officer role dedicated to Diversity and Inclusion

    Expired
      As the current President of Roehampton Students' Union, I have had to pick up a lot of the work around Diversity, Equality and Inclusion due to being the 'token black guy' and the other Sabb from a under-represented background ~ As much as I am passionate about the cause and issues, a lot of the work has taken quite a bit of time that I would have used to concentrate on other work. The role of BAME Officer has been fantastic but it is not progressive in driving through change needed because lack of resource/funding and the post holder also being a full time student; which has left BAME Officers frustrated In January 2019, I brought forward the proposal to create a Vice President Diversity and Inclusion; that would solely work on issues surrounding the various liberation groups at Roehampton... This would give greater support to our liberation officers and would give a clear knowledge of who is mandated to do this work instead of a number of different people doing the work without it getting anywhere. The proposal was supported by SUC and the Trustee Board; subject to funding and if funding is secured then it would be implemented for the March 2020 elections but as we know with many things at Roehampton - Promises are made and never kept. The Students' Union needs to be held to account if they back out of their commitment to explore this and seek funding. If money can be found for other things, then it's convenient that when it comes to race or other liberation groups suddenly their no resource. Please support this idea and mandate the SU Senior Management and Sabb team to take seriously the views of students who would like to see this role introduced; and for them to actively work towards making this happen
