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 Union policy which lasts three years.
Elections to become a member of your Students’ Council take place in March for the following year.
The Council meets three times a year, and everyone is welcome. If you’re not a member of the Students’ Council and you’d like to attend, or you’d like to find out more about how to become a member of the Council, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
