Impact

Your voice makes a big impact on the work we do as your SU to transform and improve your overall student experience. Here you’ll find a collection of just some of the things we’ve been doing together to create meaningful change.

Student Voice and Presidents

  • Amendments to Falmouth University’s governance structure.
  • Development of the ‘You Said We Did’ campaign with Falmouth University.
  • A review of hidden course costs.
  • Input into the review of Falmouth University’s feedback standards.
  • Prioritisation of gender-neutral toilets in future builds.
  • Development of a new welfare training programme.
  • Student feedback also comes through informal channels such as social media and officer networks; we used this feedback to develop our support for the Black Lives Matter movement, lobby for support regarding the UCU strikes, and to develop support for students through the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, amongst many other things.

The year in numbers

  • 400 student reps elected
  • 4,367 votes cast in the President Elections
  • 1,000 pieces of feedback collected during Speak Week and at The Big Rep Meeting
  • £34,000 raised by students for charities
  • 15,000 volunteering hours logged
  • 500+ Advice Service cases opened

A big year for Student Opportunities

RAD were nominated for the ‘Collaboration of the Year’ award at the National Student Fundraising Awards for their Naked Calendar Publication.

It was also a particularly successful year for our surfers; 7 competitors from The SU reached the top 20 in their divisions in the BUCS Surf Championships, including one student reaching a semi-final and two finishing 2nd and 4th in their division.

We have also supported student groups to arrange a wide variety of other activities over the year, including the Green Council, who put together campaigns and events such as The Green Gathering and Meat Free Mondays.

We celebrated all our groups with our Student Opportunity Awards, which took place live online this year, with all winners receiving trophies by post.
