*CUSU ELECTION VOTING OPEN NOW!*
It's Voting Week! Head to www.vote.cusu.cam.ac.uk to make your opinion heard and choose your CUSU representatives for next year. Voting is open online until 7pm on Tuesday and most colleges will be running paper ballots from 8am - 7pm on Wednesday. You can see the candidates' paper and video manifestos here: www.cusu.cam.ac.uk/elections/manifestos.html
You can also see Saturday's hustings, which was recorded live, on the manifestos page.
The CUSU sabb team have cleared our diaries to come and talk to as many students as possible to hear your views on this election and engagement with CUSU more generally. If you're part of a society, JCR or MCR committee with a meeting or event coming up, please email me and invite one of us along. We would love to come and hear what you have to say!
Some exciting welfare news this week... After years of campaigning, CUSU has secured a centrally administered university tutor training programme. CUSU, the University Counselling Service and the Disability Resource Centre will be contributing to the programme. CUSU will be supporting JCRs and MCRs in campaigning within your college to ensure training is mandatory for your tutors.
You may also have seen the relaunch of the Socially Responsible Investment campaign, which is now called POSITIVE INVESTMENT. Check out its new Facebook page and website to hear all about the campaign's excellent work.
If you're part of a society and want support in managing accounts and applying for funding from the Societies Syndicate, get in touch with CUSU's societies support member Letty. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly! The Big Cambridge Survey had launched and is ongoing. If you want a chance to win £200, fill in the survey here: http://svy.mk/1hV2ya0
I hope you're having a great Week 7 - don't forget to vote!
