University of York Students' Union (YUSU)

YUSU PRESIDENT

James Durcan

As YUSU President, I see going out and listening to students as a big part of my role. I act as a key representative for you when meeting with Executive University Management and other stakeholders, so it’s important you know what I’m up to and how you can shape your Union. I also play a major part in YUSU campaigns, work closely with colleges and their student committees, as well as being responsible for coordinating and supporting the other elected Sabbatical Officers.

Student Activities Officer

Finn Judge

My job is to look after the fun extracurricular stuff outside of your degree. That’s everything from our 200+ societies, media and volunteering groups, to big campus bungee jumps for ‘RAG’ (Raising And Giving). York has the most societies per student in the country, so if there’s anything you wanted to try out, we’ve probably got it on offer!

It’s my job to represent you in everything academic - including learning, teaching, assessment and feedback. I will facilitate dialogue between students, academic reps and the University at all levels, from informal meetings between students and departments, right up to discussions with senior managers in the University.  I will push for tangible improvements to the academic experience at York, making your engagement with your degree the best it can be.
