Democracy and campaigning

We are proud to be one of the most politically active and democratic Students' Unions in the country. Democracy and Representation is at the core of what we do as a Students' Union. We are led by Student Representatives (also known as the Executive Team) who ensure that you get the opportunity to make changes within LSESU, the School and wider society. You can submit a motion to our Union General Meeting, represent your course as a Student Staff Liason Committee Rep and even run to be one of our next leaders!

As an LSE student, you can bring about change on campus and in the wider world – and the Students’ Union offers the campaign training, resources and support you need to make that change happen.
