What is the Big SU Council?
SU Council is one of the highest representational and main decision-making body in the Union.
The council meets a number of times during the year to discuss and debate issues as well as voting on submissions from students to improve UWTSD. These are known as ‘Big Ideas’ and if they are passed at the council, your ideas will become part of our work for the next three years.
We’re currently in the process of making our Big SU Council digital, meaning we need students like you, to put forward ideas for our council to discuss to be made into policy.
Only your elected officers can vote at Campus and Big SU Council, however if you want to wait and vote on your Idea yourself, you will get the chance to submit your Ideas to our Annual GM, where all students can attend and vote.
Our Big Ideas page is the platform to share your ideas, recommend changes and steer the direction of the Students' Union. You can put your ideas forward, or look at all the suggested ideas, give them your backing and see where they are in the process.
