After another great year of campaigning, it’s all over, the votes have been cast, and the students have chosen their new Officer Team. The Union Elections 2022 displayed all of the amazing creativity and determination of the candidates.

To every one of you who stood for a role, campaigned, or voted we want to say a huge thank you. Thank you for being a part of this and thank you for helping to shape the future of the University of Derby. You have all made such a huge difference.

The results were formally announced at the Election Results Night event on Friday 11th March in the brand-new social space Basecamp. We had 12,510 votes cast in this year’s Union Elections and we’d like to say another huge congratulations to all the candidates who were elected and, of course, to everyone who took part. Those elected students will now go on to lead the Union of Students on behalf of every student at Derby, so who you voted for really does make such a difference! – The elected officers coordinate the work and direction of the Union to best fulfil their vision and that of the students.
