What is the Executive?
The Executive are a working group of 11 students who are elected by you to help implement students’ ideas, run campaigns, support student led activities and represent students’ interests with the University at every level. The UL Student Life General Manager is also a member but does not have a vote.
Work of the Executive
Each Executive member has responsibility to act as the main representatives for a particular aspect of student life on campus. They must consult with and listen to students to be effective representatives. The President is the primary UL student representative within the university and nationally.
The Exec meet in the Student Centre weekly and attend Student Council every second Tuesday. They report to Council on the work they have done on students’ behalf and feedback on the University meetings they attended. The Exec members meet with students daily whether it be to hear their ideas for UL Student Life or give guidance on the many issues students may be dealing with e.g. medical, financial difficulties, accommodation, exam papers, progression, etc.
The three full-time Student Officers and PSU President sit on over 40 University committees representing the interests of all students. This involves a lot of background reading and meeting preparation in order to contribute effectively.
