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.

    Reduction in catered cost

      Catered accommodation should be reduced as we're paying almost £2k more than everyone else for 2 meals a day excluding weekends. There isn't a lot of support for people with allergies or those who follow a healthier lifestyle. On top of that, we now aren't getting cooked meals and only have "credit" to use in the campus shop, where if we don't use the full amount or decide not to buy anything on any day, the remainder is void. I also propose that we're refunded the £500 extra for this term.

We encourage you to try and get as many students as possible to vote for your idea as this will help the Student Council consider whether your suggestion can be progressed. The next Student Council meeting is on the 18th January 2021 and we will respond to you shortly after.
