Meeting the Engagement Team in the SU

Created by Thomas Weller, Modified on Fri, 14 Jul, 2023 at 12:37 PM by Thomas Weller

If you believe that there is a problem with a committee member, if you are concerned for someone's welfare, or if you want support further developing your group, the SU can help support you. Whether you have a concern with a student group you are a part of, or if you need help putting on an event the Engagement team can support and direct you to the appropriate departments and processes.

You can contact the Engagement team by submitting a ticket through our helpdesk.

Student Group Concerns
All primary student group concerns should be relayed to your committee though if you are uncomfortable telling them or find this situation inappropriate then we are happy to help as best we can.

Particularly, if a committee member has lost passion for the group or has prematurely resigned from their leadership post, an EGM may be required. The rest of the current committee should notify all members if this is the case and you should be given the option to run for this role. In EGMs everyone should get the opportunity to run for all roles. for more information about EGMs please see our other articles. If none of those on the committee have interest in the group, please inform us via a ticket through this helpdesk and we will advise you to follow the correct processes. 

The Students' Union's confidential Advice & Support Centre also offers a mediation service where appropriate. You contact them via, or more information can be found on the SU website - Advice and Support.

Student Group Development
If your group is looking to develop in any way - whether it be getting more members, investing in new equipment, or entering a new competition, there is staff support available to you to help you achieve your goals. 

Each student group should attend a development meeting twice a year - once during the handover period in May/June with new and old committee, and once at a midpoint through the year to update on progress and to address sticking points. The development meetings are considered mandatory, as we may need to capture key information from you, but they are ultimately for your benefit to ensure your group is in the best possible position.
