Student Council tells the Students' Union what to do! Student Council does this by passing policies that the Executive officers must stick to, and passing actions which the Executive Officers must do. Student Council is made up of 50 Part-Time Officers, and it is also attended by the Students' Union Executive Officers (though they don’t get to vote). It meets at least four times per academic year.
Normally, the meetings take place as in-person meetings, but due to the Covid-19 outbreak, meetings are currently taking place online. Following a motion to Student Council last academic year, we now have policy that means that the meetings will be streamed, so all students can watch the meetings online. If we go back to in-person meetings, the policy means that the meetings will continue to be streamed online.
If there’s an issue you think the Students’ Union should be working on or something you would like the Students’ Union to have a stance on, you can bring a motion to Student Council. Any student can propose or second a motion, and any student can attend and speak in Student Council. The only thing not all students can do is vote: voting is a right only given to the part-time officers (excluding non-rep roles).
