About Reps

We believe the voice of all students should be heard loud and clear. If you have anything to say, get in touch with your academic rep – they’ll be able to pass your thoughts on to your lecturers, to the head of your department, and even to leaders of the university.

In their day-to-day activities, reps collect feedback from students, and then attend meetings with members of staff in the departments to pass it on and make change happen. They also meet with the students’ union, and we collect their feedback to pass it on to even higher levels of university management.

Some reps are chosen to be faculty reps – these students then form part of the Academic Executive, and some of these become members of University Senate, where the highest decisions are being made. Academic representation at Lancaster is administered jointly by the students’ union, and by each academic department in each faculty.
