Meet your Student Council
Trustees are ultimately responsible, individually and collectively, for all activity within
the University of Wolverhampton Students’ Union. As part of Trustee Board, Trustees govern and
set the long-term strategy for the Students’ Union. They are responsible for making sure the Students' Union
operates in line with its charitable objectives, ensuring the Students' Union remains student-led
and run for and by students. Trustee Board holds senior management to account, and make sure that the
Students’ Union remains legally and financially compliant, operating in line with Charity and Company Law,
and within the Memorandum and Articles of Association, and Bye-Laws, of the Students' Union.
Trustee Board consists of: four Sabbatical Officers, elected by students every Spring; four Lay
Trustees and four Student Trustees, both of which are appointed by the Appointments Committee of Trustee Board.
Trustee Board appoints, manages, supports, and can dismiss, the Chief Executive who is required to attend
Trustee Board Meetings. Other senior managers, staff and students may attend meetings at the request of the
Chair and Convener of Trustee Board.
