SRUCSA Elections 2019

Scotland’s Rural College Students’ Association (SRUCSA) is a democratic membership-led organisation, autonomous from Scotland's Rural College (SRUC). Under the ethos of democracy, Our student leaders voted for and elected by their own student body.

SRUCSA Elections give you the opportunity to be elected as a Student Officer and work as part of a team to run SRUCSA - your role will be to represent and act as the Voice of the Student Body and to make a difference at SRUC and SRUCSA!

There are many positions you can run and be elected to by our own student body. Our Student Officers - also known as the Executive - are comprised of:

★  Student President

★  Vice President 

★  Campus Officers (x6)

★  Sports and Activities Officer

The President and Vice President are Sabbatical Officers. They take a year (or a maximum of two) out of their studies to work for SRUCSA and represent SRUC students full time. The Campus Officers and Sports and Activities Officer are committed to working 7 paid hours per week and will fulfil this while studying.

Additionally there are four voluntary cross-campus Liberation Officer positions who also form part of the SRUCSA Executive, representing the student voice of their respective SRUC liberation communities:

★  Women's Officer

★  Black Students' Officer

★  LGBT+ Officer

★  Disabled Students' Officer
