New Committee Induction

Being a committee member comes with many responsibilities and along your journey you will have lots of fun, meet lots of people and gain new skills. The LSESU Society & Sports Team are here to help you along the way.

Welcome new LSESU Student Leaders!

Congratulations on being elected as a committee member for 2024/25! We hope you’re excited about the year ahead.

Being on the committee of an LSESU Club or Society is an amazing opportunity to shape the student experience of your members, and will be a fantastic role for you to develop your skills and experience as future leaders too. 

The SU have developed an induction process which aims to make the handover period as smooth as possible, while also equipping you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to begin your exciting new role.

Please take a look at the different steps of this process below. There are 4 main steps essential to every group, and a couple more if you're a sports club, or planning a large event next year.

The SU are there to support you through every step, so if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing either or

This will give groups the opportunity to network and collaborate with similar groups, to take your group development to the next level.
