Make A Change

Make A Change is a powerful tool which enables you to submit ideas to the Student Council to be voted and acted upon. If other students vote in favour of your suggestion, the SU will work towards implementing it! Your voice can and will make a change.

Have your say and make a change

How Make A Change works for you

The Make A Change platform enables any student to submit an idea or campaign through the website without waiting for a rep meeting or Union General Meeting (UGM).

The proposal must:

  1. Have at least 25 likes, and 25 more likes than dislikes within 6 weeks of posting in order to be added to the SU Student Council agenda, otherwise it will be rejected.
  2. The SU Student Council will then decide the future course of action for the proposal based on their powers and remit. The SU Student Council can vote to:
    • Allocate the task to one or more council members to take responsibility for it
    • Reject the idea
    • Request more information or more evidence of support
  3. If the issue is considered a liberation Issue by the Elections & Democracy Committee, it should instead pass to the Liberation Committee to be voted on.

    Install a public piano on campus

    Current
      Music has the power to lift moods, combat depression, and bring people together. Installing a public piano on campus (e.g. in between the shop and film building) will go a long way in improving the atmosphere of the university, especially in these trying times.
