Current Policies

A policy is effectively an idea that a student, or a number of students, have had which they believe will make the student experience at Sheffield Hallam University better. Once passed, policies are binding for three years - and the Students' Union needs to work to make sure they happen!

As a Students' Union we have a number of policies on various topics, the details of these & the person responsible for them can be found below...
