There are five full-time Executive Officer roles and seven part-time Liberation Representative roles to fill that will lead the SU for 2020-2021. Could you be a part of our next Officer Team?
Within each role is a focus, all of which have the outcome of improving student experience and to ensure that here at DSU, we are continuously representing your interests.
Governance Coordinator Mu-Hamid Pathan says: “The De Montfort Students’ Union is a student-led, democratic organisation which represents students of De Montfort University.
