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 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 9 elected student volunteers covering a range of positions.
The group is made up of 9 students that, aside from the Sports President, are democratically elected at the Annual General Meeting held in March for the following years period of office. The role of the Sports Executive is to:
- Represent all students participating in Strathclyde Sports Union clubs and activities.
- Assist and enhance the promotion, development and organisation of Sports Union activities, events and initiative.
