What are School Presidents?
The role of the School Presidents is one of the most important positions in the student representation system. Each of the nine academic Schools elects a student to be the School President and lead the student voice. School President works closely and is supported by the Vice Presidents and Class Representatives of each School.
The School President regularly attends senior committees in each School and is in regular communication with the academic management about students learning experience. They also work together with the DUSA Executive team and are each Schools link to the Student Representative Council (SRC) as a sitting member.
What are School Vice-Presidents?

This is a rewarding role and provides a great opportunity to improve skills and be a part of the culture of continuous improvement within your School.
