Governance in UK Students’ Unions: A Stewardship Perspective

conference contribution
posted on 2024-05-18, 18:26 authored by Dan Taylor, Jennifer Law, Catherine Farrell

Against a backdrop of legislative and regulatory change in the mid 2000’s and a focus of the media on negative tales of no-platforming, poor leadership and toxic environments, the good governance of students’ unions is of great importance. With a lack of research into students’ unions generally and even fewer studies focused specifically on their governance, this research investigates the roles of trustee board members within students’ unions, as registered charities. The research uncovers a unique governance structure, related to other types of charities, with an intertwined set of reliance relationships between trustees themselves and with their senior staff members, to enable trustees to perform their roles.
