NUS 100: manifesto for a just and sustainable future

Tuesday 05-07-2016 - 18:05

At Students’ Unions 2016 Simon Blake, NUS Chief Executive, launched our new strategic framework -  NUS 100: manifesto for a just and sustainable future.      

NUS 100 has been a key priority for the last year. It is a framework designed to take NUS up to its hundredth year, in six years’ time. It is a roadmap to strengthen and build the organisation, and the wider movement, so that together we can achieve our ultimate aims.

The strategic framework is underpinned by a solid, principled theory of change that we have developed through extensive consultations and engagement with students’ unions over the last year. It is based on what you told us you were working on, and on what you told us you wanted NUS to be. 

So what do we want achieve?

NUS 100 sets out four key areas:

Everyone can access and excel in post 16 education

The learner voice creates change in education

Wellbeing and welfare are central to the student experience

Students should be confident to engage in civic life

And how will we achieve this?

Again we have summarised this into four key areas:

Supporting excellence in students’ unions

Developing a strong and influential collective voice

Putting data, evidence and digital at the heart of our movement

Attracting and retaining outstanding people

The strategy document takes you into much more detail on each of the above mentioned points. Here is a link to the strategy in English, and a link to the strategy in Welsh.
