So what is a Student Officer?
Student officers are Solent University students that are elected into voluntary roles to represent specific areas of the student body. They are split into three categories:
Equality Students' Officers represent minority and potentially underrepresented parts of the student membership. They are the student leads at Solent to ensure that their peers have equality within the university and wider community and that their voices are heard.
Education Students' Officers represent different parts of the academic membership on all issues affecting them within the university and wider community. These are limited to just academic matters.
Student Life Group
Student Life Students' Officers represent the views of Solent students as a whole, on the specific issues they represent within the university and wider community. They consult with students and campaign for appropriate change.
