Make a Difference

KCLSU is every student at King's College London. We have the power to lead and shape our Union, for the benefit of all of us!

If there’s something you want to change about our Union, we call that an Idea.

If there’s something you want to change in the University or the wider world, we call that a Campaign.

Ideas – developing our Union

If there’s something in our Union you want to develop, improve or change for the benefit of King’s students, all you have to do is send it in. KCLSU’s President looks at all the Ideas and then allocates them to the most relevant committee of elected students (if it’s relevant to more than one committee, then they’ll discuss and work on it together). That could be:

  • Activities
  • Ethics
  • Interfaith
  • Sports
  • Welfare

These five committees of elected students will meet regularly through the year and those meetings are open to any student who’s interested in coming along. Each Idea will be introduced by the student who suggested it, and the committee will discuss it and decide to action the Idea, action the Idea in part or not go forward with the Idea.

To take an Idea forward, we’ll assign it to one or more students, who – with support from KCLSU staff – will develop it into a recommendation for KCLSU’s Trustee Board. Our Trustee Board is three quarters elected students and has the final decision on whether to implement an Idea.

Send in your Idea or find out more.

Campaigns – changing KCL and society

By campaigning together through our Union, we’ve got the opportunity to get support and resources that will help the campaign to achieve its aims.

For a Campaign to become a KCLSU supported campaign, it needs our endorsement as students through an online petition.Campaigns can be endorsed by our Union or by a KCLSU Association - one of seven student communities. 

Once a Campaign is endorsed by enough of us to become a KCLSU supported campaign, the student(s) leading it will get guidance and support to put together their campaign strategy. Support could include skills training, resources, access to funding, or 1-2-1 meetings. Part of being a supported campaign is sharing actions, progress and successes with all of us through regular updates.  

As well as Campaigns endorsed through an online petition, campaign aims that were in the manifestos of elected students we voted for – Student Officers and Association leads – are also KCLSU supported campaigns.
