Lent Elections 2017

Nominations in the CUSU-GU annual Lent Term elections are now open!

This time each year, the sabbatical officer positions of GU President and CUSU-GU Welfare & Rights Officer are elected. These are full-time paid roles, and offer a strong position from which to impact upon the student experience at Cambridge, as well as wide- anging experience for the role holder.

The Graduate Union President has two major responsibilities:

  • To be the chief representative of graduate students at the University, and as such to participate in the work of almost all University and intercollegiate committees with student representation; and
  • To be the  nominal head, chair of trustees and principal financial officer of the GU as a charitable organisation independent of both the University and CUSU.

These elections are run in conjunction with those for four other CUSU sabbatical officer positions, and a number of part-time roles.

For full information on the election, including details of the positions available and the candidates' pack, is available on the CUSU website.
