Introduction to Networks


Student Networks

After student feedback last year, we worked hard to develop an answer to concerns of under representation in the student experience and have created seven Student Networks in the following areas:

  • Network without Portfolio

These new Networks will work to create a community in previously underrepresented areas of the student population and become key to making a change in your academic journey.

Our Student Networks will work to enhance diversity on campus, improve student participation, lead and drive student campaigns and provide a crucial student voice in UPSU decision making.

If you’re interested in getting involved please get in touch with the sabbatical officer that is assigned to support the network, and they will be able to signpost you to meetings and events within each network. Alternatively, you can fill in this form in order to register your interest and a network supporter will be in touch with you.

Get in touch with the Student Focus Team, please email studentfocus@upsu.net.


Faculty Networks

Each faculty has its own Network within the Students’ Union, where Course Reps, Faculty Reps and students gather to discuss existing issues within their faculty, build up campaigns, organise initiatives and, most importantly, work together to improve the university experience. The Faculty Network chair attends the meetings of the Union Actioning Body (UAB) which is the primary decision making body for all UPSU campaigns and democratic matters.

Below are the links for the separate Facebook groups and the contact details for each of the respective Faculty Network Chairs and supporters.

The Faculty Network Chair is Janet EvatuBALnetwork@upsu.net
