"Students’ Unions are organisations that can make a huge impact on university and community life. They occupy a unique space in the lives and relationships of students that is both exciting and challenging in equal measure. The ability of students’ unions to bring together students in their full diversity and to help them connect with the university, with commercial and community partners and others is unparalleled. Building critical ingredients of governance, student leadership, organisational culture and dynamic spaces can create organisations that are transformative for students, universities and communities."
