Durham Students' Union is governed at the uppermost level of its structure by a Trustee Board.
The Trustee Board is ultimately legally and financially responsible for all that happens in DSU - a big responsibility! The Trustee Board comprises of 12 people. The four Sabbatical Officers are automatically members of the Trustee Board and there are four student trustees who are elected each year in Election Week in February. In addition to this there are four Co-Opted Trustees. These are members who are not members of DSU and are appointed by the Trustee Board for their expertise. They sit for a four year term.
