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.

For more information please contact studentvoiceteam@thesu.org.uk.

    Ensure a no detriment policy for Falmouth university students

    Current
      Due to a lack of facilities, drastically reduced contact hours and the uncertainty surrounding practical examinations and our futures after graduation the university must ensure a no detriment policy. Failure to do so will only unnecessary further the stress experienced in this uncertain time and will have a negative effect not only on our final graduating grades and therefore our career prospects, but also on mental health. Please consider this appeal to provide a safety net for your students.

    10:59am on 11 Feb 21 At the last Student Council, the following motion was passed: "A motion to cause the Students’ Union to review how COVID-19 has affected teaching at the Universities in Cornwall; to campaign for change for Students during the COVID-19 pandemic; and for connected purposes." A lot of progress has already been made towards this policy already including the No Detriment Campaign: https://www.thesu.org.uk/voice/campaigns/nodetriment/ Please visit the Campaigns page: https://www.thesu.org.uk/voice/campaigns/ for other progress including campaigns such as Ease The Fees and the Rent Campaign. If you have any questions please contact studentvoice@thesu.org.uk.
