National Union of Students (NUS) delegate and Animal Biology student Lily Climie is running for re-election to represent the interests of Stirling Students on the national stage.
Lily ran for NUS last year because she wanted to become more active in the Students’ Union, because she never really heard about NUS before and wanted to make it more accessible for students.
She added: “I found that I not only enjoyed the role, but was able to do it well; helping protect the NUS Trans caucus at the last conference was one of the things I’m most proud of.
“I’m running for re-election because I care about the role and want to keep the NUS accountable to all students by supporting One Member One Vote – that all students (not just delegates) get to vote on roles such as national president.”
She also added that NUS Scotland is in a much better financial state that the national one, but has been forced to cut its full-time officer numbers.
She believes that: “Since education is devolved it’s important that we keep the Scottish NUS as more than a splinter group.”
