Democracy

The Students' Union is a democratic organisation. Each year the leaders of the Students' Union, the Student officer Team, are elected in the campus wide Students' Union Elections. The Student Officer Team are also supported by 12 elected part time Students' Union Reps.

At the heart of the Students' Union is the Union Council. The Union Council, the highest decision making body within the Students' Union,  is made up of 29 students including the Student Officers and Student' Union Reps. All students can feed into the Union Council via the open Union Council zones; Your Education Zone, Your Community Zone and Your Students' Union Zone.



Any student can submit a motion to Union Council, which will be discussed and voted upon to see whether or not it should be passed. You can submit any policy to the Students' Union President - uuspresident@shu.ac.uk
