Through decisions made by students, we have a number of policies that impact on the way we run as a Union of Students! Our policies are here to ensure that the values which students feel are important, such as the environment, equal rights, and education funding, are reflected all the way through the SU.
Here you will find current Students’ Union Policy which has been established by Referenda or Students’ Union Council. These policies remain valid until the first Students’ Union Council meeting in the third academic year after it has been adopted.
When a student wants to propose a new policy idea before it can go to Students' Union Council for a decision it must be available for all students to view and consider for 10 days! You can view any new Policy Proposals being discussed here. If you would like to propose any SU Policy ideas, amendments to current Policies or just want to get in touch with further questions please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Policy Due For Review
When a policy is due to be renewed, Student Executive Committee (your 8 Officers) are required to review the policies and recommend to Students’ Union Council that they should be either renewed without amendment for up to three years, amended or allowed to lapse. Amendments to policy can be agreed by referendum or by Council, but in either case the proposed policy change has to published on the Students’ Union website and circulated to members of Council in advance, so that students are given the opportunity to comment and submit alternative proposals.
Officers are required to allocate responsibilities for each current Students’ Union policy and prepare proposals for action to be taken in support of the policy, which shall be submitted for approval to the first meeting of Council and then to report on action taken at later meetings. If you are interested in getting involved with a particular Policy email us for more information at email@example.com. Funding is also available for students who want to take action in support of an SU Policy.
