Campaigns & Policy

LSE is your community, so you're in the best place to notice the things that need to change. But you don't have to do it alone. This is your Union, and we will give you the support you need.

Can you think of a way to make LSE life better for everyone?

LSESU is a campaigning organisation. This means that we’re here to empower students to run campaigns and lobby the School. We also run our own campaigns (led by Student Officers) and carry out policy work; all with the aim of improving your student experience.

Campaigning and influencing policy at LSESU is the way to make your voice heard on campus. Campaigners collaborate with the SU to change policy at LSE by building a movement that has democratic legitimacy. The SU supports student campaigns by providing expert advice, resources, training, and access to funding. 

We’ve worked with thousands of students to take action on campus, and change student life for the better.

What does the campaigns & policy team do?

Our campaigns & policy team helps develop and facilitate your student-run campaigns to ensure that the delivery of your campaign is as effective and proactive as possible. We’re here to support you in shaping your initial plans to promote your actions. 

What is campaigning? Why is it important?

Campaigning is all about making a difference — whether that’s at LSE, your local neighbourhood or internationally. Whatever your campaign is about, if you’re passionate about an issue that affects you and your fellow students, it’s important. 

Am I a campaigner?

Campaigns are student-led initiatives which draw attention to ongoing issues and aim to change current policies or create new ones. These issues could be related to anything on or off campus, from academic concerns to on campus to climate change to decolonising the curriculum —  there’s no limit to your advocacy!
