De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) is looking for De Montfort University Students (DMU) to join our highest decision-making body as a Student Trustee.
As a registered charity, DSU’s Trustee Board is made up of industry experts, plus both past and present DMU students – including our Officer Team – to oversee the work that we do to represent your academic interests during your time at university.
Together, they help form the strategic direction of a students’ union with a gross income of more than £1million.
All members of the Trustee Board volunteer their time and hold meetings around four times a year.
Kalem Todd, current Student Trustee said: “Working as a student trustee is probably the most fulfilling position I have on campus."
"Despite it only being a couple of hours a term; you learn so much, and have the ability to influence decisions that impact students’ everyday lives on campus."
Applications for current DMU students to join the Trustee Board for 2019/20 are now open here, and close on Wednesday 29 May at 11:59.
"I cannot urge anyone who feels they could make a real contribution to the board to apply” Kalem continued. “It gives you real professional and personal skills, and a real sense of fulfilment that you’re using your knowledge to benefit students on campus.”.
Applications will be anonymised and then passed to the Trustee Board to vote on who will join them as Student Trustees next year.
If successful, you’ll also be invited to join DSU's one-of-a-kind training course, where we also develop the skills of trustees from around the UK.
If you want to have a say in how you Students' Union in run, apply to become a Student Trustee today – head to the page here before 11:59 on Wednesday 29 May.
