You are here »About / Trustee Board
The Trustee Board is the body that oversees the operations of UCS Union. It approves any governing decisions that Union Council has made, sets the long term strategies for the organisation and ensures the Union is fulfilling its purpose: to represent the students.
The Trustee Board is made up of the President and Vice President of UCS Union, as well as two students elected by Union Council. There are also four non-student trustees who ensure the student trustees are fully informed and making the right decisions that serve in the best interest of their members: the students.
