Speak Week

What is Speak Week?

Speak Week is an opportunity for you, and every SRUC student, to have their voice heard. It is now in its fourth year; your voice truly makes a difference both at college and here at SRUCSA.

We want to hear praise, criticism, and everything in between. Tell about whatever affects your life at SRUC. You can drop a card into one of the boxes on campus between the 20th and 26th of November, or answer the two simple questions online. You can get to the form quickly by scanning the QR code on any of our posters.

When is Speak Week?

Speak Week is between the 20th and 26th of November 2023. You will see the cards and boxes appear on your campus before this and after. We will always accept feedback, so feel free to keep giving us your responses.

What’s the point?

The point of Speak Week is to make changes at SRUC, that improve your life at SRUC. After we have gathered all the feedback, we read every comment, and group them by themes. This allows us to find the most pressing issues. Using all the comments we receive, we create a list of recommended changes that we want to see happen.

We write these into a short report, which we take to SRUC senior management. Then we ask SRUC to respond to the report with actions that they will take. We will also respond to the report with the actions SRUCSA will take. We will ensure these actions happen. Through our work representing you at meetings, and in the projects we do.
