University of Somalia has a robust and vibrant Students’ Union that brings together students from all faculties and departments. UNISO Students’ Union exists to represent the interests of the students and organizes them in voluntary activities that contribute to their social well-being. Every UNISO student is automatically a member of the University of Somalia Students’ Union. It is a representative body which ensures that student concerns are addressed in the University’s decision-making processes. Each year every student gets to cast his/her vote in a highly contested students’ election process to elect the Student Union leaders. Candidates launch very ostentatious campaigns by way of soliciting the support of the voters. This yearly student election event makes a real sense of democracy and freedom for the students of the University of Somalia and gives them a glimpse of what leadership entails for.
