Democracy and Governance Council

What is it?

We are a democratic organisation and as such have one of the most active democracies of any students’ union in the country. To make sure we are always heading in the right direction and to ensure that all democratic procedures are effective, accessible and engaging, we have Democracy and Governance Council who oversees this for us.

They’re also involved in Student Ideas (SI), a platform where students share their ideas on how to improve the student experience during their time at university and their fellow peers can vote on ideas they’d like to see come to fruition. The Council oversees the progression of ideas and makes sure this is done through the Guild’s process and they’ll make contributions as defined in the SI procedures.

The Chair of the Council is the DVP Democracy and Governance. For more information, including a list of membership and the latest meeting minutes, click here.
