The Students' Union has a number of committees and meetings which are designed to encourage participation, gather information and opinions on issues affecting you as students and assign actions to Union Officers to take forward through policy.
Below you will find out about future and previous meetings which are open to all students to attend. For previous agendas or minutes please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Students’ Union Zones are your place to say what you want!
These meetings are open to all members of the Union (that means you) and are where all the major decisions about where we stand and what we do are made. Any student can put forward their views and propose a new direction for the union and any student can debate and vote on this. These meetings are also a great place to find out what has been going on over the past month or so in the Union and to question your elected representatives about what they are doing to make your lives better.
New agendas will be added prior to the meetings taking place. For more information or to put forward your own ideas to a zone meeting please email Amy Eberlin, Democracy & Research Coordinator
