Campaigns.

Throughout the course of a year, the Students' Union will tackle a number of campaigns. This often takes the form of a week of action and consists of everything from hosting events, lobbying the University and other organisations, taking part in national demonstrations and more.

These campaigns are generally led by a sabbatical officer although our Student Communities, Executives and other elements of the student body can take the lead on a campaign that is close to their heart while receiving Students' Union backing.

If there's a campaign you'd like to see the Students' Union tackle you can submit it to our Bright Ideas platform or if you're simply looking for advice on running a campaign and want to see how we can support you, please email voice@su.rhul.ac.uk.
