We are run by both students and full-time staff and are headed up by five full time elected officers. Daniel, Brooke, Ebony, Alex, and Charlie were elected by the students of BU in our annual elections, and their sole purpose is to represent the best interest of the student body. They work on a personal, local and national level to promote Bournemouth students, even holding the university to account on issues that directly affect students.

Our vision is that "by 2018, SUBU will make a positive impact upon every BU student's journey."

We underpin these by five further strategic themes, which are:

- A major collective force for all students

- Helping students to realise their potential

- Creating friendships

- Understood and recognised, more accessible and approachable to all students

- Ethical and environmental

Below are a collection of documents concerning SUBU's departmental strategic plans and KPI's.
