About Kent Union.
Kent Union is run by students for students. There are three sections of our organisation that work together to ensure we run smoothly. It’s easier to explain by the diagram on the left.
You can get involved to ensure that all students studying at Kent have a voice within Kent Union, the University and also in our local community. Whether you want to improve your degree, help shape what we do, change how the University works or make something better in our local community, we are here to help.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any contact details you may need of Kent Union staff.
Our Board of Trustees exists to oversee the running of Kent Union. It is made up of the 5 sabbatical officers, 4 external trustees and 4 student trustees. Our Board of Trustees has ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of Kent Union, ensuring we are solvent, well-run and delivering our objectives. Our Board meets four times a year and holds an annual residential meeting as well.
The Board is responsible for signing off the Strategic Plan which sets the direction of Kent Union. It also ensures that we comply with charity law. Our Trustees are legally responsible for ensuring that everything we do is in the best interests of our members.
