Make Change

LBSU is run by students, for students! We believe that students have the power to drive meaningful change and shape their educational journey, and LBSU is dedicated to empowering you to do just that.

LBSU’s Student Community Organisers are students who work part-time to actively listen to students from all areas of the university to connect, exchange ideas and support you to build your collective power. As well as being leaders and supporting the activity of our Student Community Groups, the Student Community Organisers are also your peers, understanding the unique challenges and experiences of student life.

They are passionate about building a strong community that ensures that everyone feels valued and empowered to make a difference and would like to connect with you to make this happen. Get in touch today at lbsu-communityorganisers@leedsbeckett.ac.uk to chat with us about your university experiences and interests.

‘Have Your Say’ is your platform to make change happen and is one of the ways that you can influence the Students’ Union policy stance, campaigning agenda or our priorities for improving the student experience in the next academic year.
