Trustee Board

RGU Students’ Union (RGU:Union) is an independent member-led organisation which exists to represent and support students at Robert Gordon University.

As a registered charity in Scotland, RGU:Union is governed by a Trustee Board which is comprised of elected Student Presidents, student representatives (elected and appointed), a university representative, plus a number of external trustees who can draw on diverse skills and industry experience to advise and support Union affairs and development.

Trustee Board members meet throughout the year and collectively contribute to the overall direction of RGU:Union, ensuring appropriate support is available with regards to the charity's long-term strategy, key performance areas, budgeting, and future development.


Our Trustee Board is made up of 13 individuals:

- 8 students
- 1 university-nominated member of staff
- 4 external members


The role of a trustee is to ensure that all decisions made by the Union are in the best interests of RGU students and to make sure that we are serving our members (you, the students!) to the best of our ability.

We have a great mix of people on the Trustee Board from a range of different backgrounds and disciplines, all with differing areas of expertise.

If you would like to find out about the role of Student Trustees, or would like to find out how you can become a member of the Trustee Board, then please get in touch.
