Change Week 2020 

 

Monday 3rd - Friday 7th February

We are excited to say that Worcester Students' Union held our second annual Change Week in February 2020! #ChangeWeekWSU

WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE?


The University of Worcester is our home, our course, our money and our future. We care about making sure that our university is the best it can be and that every single one of your voices matter. The Students' Union is led by students, which means you are the ones leading change. So, got something you'd like to make happen? #ChangeWeekWSU 

Share your thoughts about all aspects of being a student at Worcester on our brand new Ideas Forum. The Ideas Forum is a direct, new, and effective way to get your voice heard, and you can use it as many times as you want during your time as a University of Worcester student!

So what are we doing with all your ideas?

On the big ideas, we have been working with the University to hold joint working groups, where students and staff have the opportunity to get together and discuss what's directly affecting students as well as what they love about the University. 

Working Groups will be held throughout March, with the themes of Academic Experience, Campus and Facilities, Local Communities, Student Life and Support and Your SU. We will be providing students with ongoing updates after these working groups through the website and social media, so keep your eyes peeled for any changes happening as a result of Change Week! 

If you are interested in taking part in any of the above working groups please email Abbie at a.banner@worc.ac.uk
