WHO ARE WE?
We are the constituted coordinating body for all student sport at the University of Strathclyde. The most important factor of the Sports Union is that it is run by students for students. Through a system of democratic committees each member has a voice as to how decisions are made.
The University of Strathclyde Sports Union was founded in 1921 as the Royal Technical College Athletic Club. Over the years there have been numerous changes to the name and structure, but we officially became part of the Students’ Union in 1989 when the merger of the two bodies created our current structure.
The Sports President is elected each year from the student body for a one year full time (paid) position and is assisted by the Sports Executive, made up of 10 elected students democratically elected at the Annual General Meeting.
