About Our Strategy 2016

'Our Strategy 2016' is Sheffield Students' Union strategic plan for 2012-2016.

The plan is based on feedback from our members and our staff; our purpose, our values and our goals reflect the things that are most important to our students and our enablers reflect the things that we as an organisation need to excel at, in order to fulfil our students' aspirations for their Students' Union.

Every 6 months the Students' Union runs an 'Our Strategy 2016 Highlight Week', showcasing how we are progressing with our strategic plan.

An exhibition will be located in the Plaza on Level 3 on the whiteboard highlighting the elements of the plan. We encourage everybody to visit the exhibition and to use the available resources to feedback your ideas and thoughts about Our Strategy.

Alongside the exhibition, throughout the week, sessions will take place on the different elements of the plan. Everybody is welcome to attend any of these sessions. 

Check out the sessions where you can hear about our activities & have some input into areas of our strategy.
