How UnionCloud has worked for other Union staff
How UnionCloud has helped University of Cumbria Students’ Union drive student engagement.
“We have been using UnionCloud for three years here at Cumbria SU.
Cumbria is a multi-site institution with almost 10,000 members spread across six campus sites, plus a high volume of distance, mature and part time students. Therefore it’s incredibly important that we have a digital platform as diverse as our membership, and UnionCloud helps us to engage with our members efficiently and effectively.
UnionCloud enables UCSU members to do so much. They can elect representatives and officer teams, join or start their own student groups and sports teams, access volunteering opportunities and support services, contact their elected officers, submit student ideas to be discussed by the elected UCSU Panel, access information and guidance on things like academic checklists, housing, finance, sexual and mental health and order NUS extra cards and other SU merchandise.
Put simply, no other platform can offer the versatility or the multi-layered ‘Union in a box’ dynamic that UnionCloud has achieved.
From building user groups to enabling targeted communication and providing a robust democratic system for members to elect their chosen reps and officers, UnionCloud is a vital tool for all staff, officers, volunteers and stakeholders of UCSU. We’d very much like to say a huge thank you to Rebecca, William, Sabrina, Mike, Ash and the rest of the awesome NUS Digital team for all their support to help Cumbria SU become a Union our members can be proud of.”
