For students that have something to say
Hi there, my name is Theo and I'm your 2020-2021 VP Voice. Together, the Voice Zone and I take a lead on everything relating to student opinion, democracy, and representing you at a national level.
Over the year, we train and support more than 550 Course Representatives, who are students that volunteer to represent their cohort on academic issues. We also run elections for more than 150 Clubs and Societies, as well as Surrey Decides - the annual election process for all SU Officers!

What is the Voice Zone?
The Voice Zone is made up of five Part Time Officers and led by the full time VP and together they support students by giving a voice to concerns that they express, and the directing the passion demonstrated to drive change at the University.
The zone lead on elections, including AGMs for clubs and societies, Surrey Decides and Course Rep elections. Course Reps are at the heart of the voice zone, and allow for the Union to facilitate open discussions with the University on issues and improvements to the academic life and general student life. The Voice Zone is responsible for obtaining student opinion on issues that have an ever-present impact on student life and these are usually acted on in some of the campaigns ran each year. The Zone also runs an awards system for Lecturers referred to as SHOUT Awards, allowing students to celebrate those lecturers who have gone above and beyond.
