Policy

Once a motion is passed at Student Assembly, it becomes policy of the SU. This means that it becomes our stance on a certain issue and shapes the work that we do in this area. Most policies contain a 'This Union Resolves...' section, which outlines what students would like the SU to do.

Below is a list of all our active policy and when it was passed.
