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.
Union General Meeting
The Union General Meeting is your weekly opportunity to find out what your Student Reps have been working on, as well as to submit and debate key motions for new policy and question key figures within the School.
SSLC Reps (Staff Student Liaison Committee Representatives) are elected by their student peers to represent them during the academic year and to liaise with departments within the School.
Your Election, Your Union
Elections are the best way to have your say on how your Students' Union is run and take place twice a year. There are a number of positions you can run for – from General Secretary to members of different committees.
The Democracy Committee makes sure that democratic processes at LSESU are run smoothly, transparent and open to everyone. The committee is made up of five elected students.
