Through previous attendance of NUS student conferences, Levene has built up relationships with many key NUS figures, including NUS President Wes Streeting. His work with YUSU has led to an “in-depth knowledge” of how the Student Union operates, meaning Levene knows how and where the NUS can help.
He believes the knowledge he has of the workings of the NUS, along with these contacts, will ensure the University of York has the national support it needs in the coming year.
Levene’s previous successful campaigns have included the fight to keep Alcuin bar open, as well as the “Yes to NUS” affiliation campaign in his first year. Levene believes his policies represent a plan to improve YUSU’s relationship with NUS, and to ensure the University of York gets the support that it needs.
