What is a campaign?
A campaign is a strategic process aimed at affecting change for a specific outcome. It might include actions like sit-ins, protests and banner drops as well as petitions, lobbying and letter-writing.
Having a clear outcome is key to a successful campaign and is a good starting point when thinking about running your own campaign.
What can I campaign about?
You can campaign about anything you want. With the nature of the Students' Union existing to support and advance your educational experience, we expect most campaigns run by students will relate to issues that students care about and the university experience.
Nominated for an NSVA award, our 19/20 Inclusivity Officer Zoe Burden organised a range of activities to celebrate Disability Week and raise awareness about inclusivity and accessibility. The week included a film, a free British Sign Language Workshop and an inspiring talk by the actor Adam Pearson about body confidence.
The Students’ Union, along with 600 other students’ unions, is also a member of the National Union of Students. As well as key education campaigns that lobby the government on behalf of all HE students, the NUS also prioritises liberation campaigns that support and promote equality for black, disabled, women and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans students.
