Students' Council

What is a Students' Council Member?

Every member of the Students’ Council represents the views of a different community at UCLan.

Council Members represent students' views and debate constructively on key issues at meetings. They also check that the 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.
