NUS UK Board

The NUS UK is one of the 6 legal entities which makes up the NUS Group.

This Board is made up of:

  • The National President
  • 6 SU Officer Directors
  • 4 NUS Officer Directors
  • 4 External Directors

You can see who they are for the current year here and you can find out how to get involved on the Get Involved pages.

This Board is one of the overarching governing bodies of the organisation. It shares this responsibility with the National Executive Council and National Conference.

The other 5 legal entities link to NUS UK. The NUS UK Board is responsible for the management and administration of the National Union.

Even though this Board has overall responsibility for the individual companies (known as the group), it has delegated some of its responsibilities to the different Boards and Committees.

Part of this delegation is that it doesn't monitor all of the 1 year plans. It is the responsibility of this Board to monitor the Campaigning and Influencing section.

NUS Services will monitor Enterprise and NUS SU Charitable Services will monitor Supporting Students’ Unions.

What happens at meetings?

At each meeting the Board will receive updates on the progress and actions against the Campaigning and Influencing plan. There will be an update on the discussion and actions of the Finance and Resource Committee, Audit and Risk committee and the Human Resources Committee.

These 3 committees manage and monitor the organisation’s finances, risk and all matters relating to human resources across the whole NUS Group.

The Group Chief Executive provides an update on their work and the main priorities of work in NUS UK.
