Constituent Union committee roles

Can you lead the Engineers, Scientists, Miners, Medics or Postgraduates?

Imperial College London was founded through the merger of a number of smaller scientific, engineering and medical teaching institutions from 1907 to as recently as the 1990s. When these institutions united into one College, their students' unions also came together - becoming Imperial College Union. 

The distinctions between the different institutions live on in Imperial College Union as the 'Constituent Unions', of which there are six. Five are participating in the Leadership Elections 2018:

The Constituent Unions are fully integral parts of Imperial College Union, collectively forming a single organisation. Each Constituent Union has its own President, its own executive, and supports its own events, clubs and societies, as well as collaborating with the Academic and Wellbeing Representation Networks.  Unique to Imperial amongst students' unions in the United Kingdom, our Constituent Unions maintain the rich history and independent identities of the various communities within the wider Imperial student body. Each Constituent Union has its own set of historic mascots and traditions, as well as healthy rivalries with each other, all of which are familiar to Imperial students to this day.
