Strath Union is a registered charity and the Student Officers are elected to work full time representing students in the local community and at all levels of decision-making within the University. The Officers lead The Union's political direction, run campaigns on your behalf and hold the University to account on decisions which affect students.

The Student Exec are also Trustees of the organisation meaning that they work with external experts to ensure the health of The Union's finances, governance and strategy. Any student can stand for election to be on the Student Exec and every single student has the opportunity to vote for who they believe will best represent them.
