Ensuring Clubs & Pubs run smoothly

The Clubs & Pubs Department of the Student Union is responsible for working with all of Stuyvesant's clubs, publications, and organizations to make sure that every student gets the most benefit (socially and academically) out of their four years at Stuyvesant. We do this by giving everyone the resources to successfully start, join, or manage a club. Our goal is to help all clubs and pubs be as organized and efficient as possible. To do this, the Clubs & Pubs Department assists clubs, publications, and organizations with making charters, reserving rooms, budgeting, and finding potential members. We are also responsible for making sure that all of Stuyvesant's activities adhere to all SU and DOE rules and regulations.

Ensuring people know what's happening

Though the Student Union as a whole is in charge of ‘bridging the gap’, the Communications department is essentially that link between student body and the SU. We make sure students stay informed about what events are occurring, what actions the Student Union is taking, and generally what is going on at Stuyvesant. Some of our recent projects have included creating newsletters, social media posts, releases about new projects (such as the StuyActvities.org demo video), along with update videos. In other words, whether this involves writing emails, Facebook posts, or finding other creative ways to spread information to students, the Communications department ensures that the Student Union stays transparent to every Stuyvesant student!

In addition, we represent Stuyvesant at the Borough Student Advisory Council, at the Youth Technical Assistance Center for Disproportionality, and at the Community Board 1 and Battery Park City Authority. We look forward to accomplishing a lot this year!/p>

Thibaud Roy
External Affairs Delegate

My name is Thibaud Roy and I serve as a Delegate of External Affairs for Student Union. Going into my Junior year and knowing the workload that entails, I reevaluated my extracurricular activities. I cut down the number of activities I participate in, restricting myself to putting my full effort outside of school into the Stuyvesant soccer team and my position on SU. I applied for this position because I thought it was an interesting and rewarding position, and it has not let me down. Working alongside the external affairs team on projects such as the fifth floor balcony project and gaining experience in local politics and funding has been an eye-opening experience, and I look forward to a productive year.
