TSDSU is both a students’ union and a charity. This means that we have a Board of Trustees who are responsible for the financial and legal stability of the organisation, and setting the strategic direction of the organisation. The Board is made up of the full-time officers, three current students elected by the student body and four externals trustees who bring expertise in a range of areas.
For the day-to-day matters, there is the Executive Committee. This comprises the full-time officers and senior managers. All the work of the organisation is overseen here, to make sure it is in line with student wishes.
Students have a direct say in the running of the organisation through student councils. These hold the full-time officers to account and decide the policies and beliefs of the organisation, as well as setting campaigns for officers and staff to work on.
If you have any questions about how this works, or want to get involved, please email Jeremy Harvey, the Advocacy and Governance Coordinator and Board Secretary.
