There's not long to go until the next Students’ Council meeting, so we’re going to give you the lowdown on what Students’ Council is and does, as well as share what’s on the agenda.

Your Students’ Council is made up of voluntary, Elected Student Reps and your Full Time Elected Officers. Every member of the Students’ Council represents the views of a different community at UCLan, and are elected by students, for students every year.

Council Members represent your views and debate constructively on key issues at meetings. They also check that your Full Time Elected Officers are keeping standards high across the Students’ Union!

The Students’ Council votes on Union policy (submitted through Your Big Ideas) and ensures that existing policies are put into action. Each Big Idea approved by the Council, is then set as Union policy, which lasts three years.

The next Council meeting will take place on Microsoft Teams on Thursday 11th February, 5-7pm, you can find the meeting link on the event on our website here.

There are three big Ideas up for discussion at the next meeting:

  • Cap grade weighting of Group Work
  • Free Print credit for new students
  • Support student sex workers now!

If you have a Big Idea for change on campus or in the local community, why not submit one! Just go to our Your Big Ideas page to find out more and submit yours.
