Humanities & Social Sciences Board

The Humanities and Social Sciences Board – also known as the HSS Board – is a committee that looks at issues affecting students within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The committee is a subcommittee of Student Council, which means that it reports back to Student Council.

The HSS Board can discuss issues, lobby the university and pass policies. The Board’s remit doesn’t cover issues that affect students in more than one faculty – these would instead be covered by the Education Board, Welfare Board, Communities Board or Student Council.

The Board usually meets 4 times per year, you can see the times and dates below. The meeting will take place online. If you would like to attend a meeting of the HSS Board, you can contact the Chair.
