About Student Council
Student Council is your chance to shape the issues that Edge Hill Students' Union focuses on. Meeting at least three times per academic year, it consists of elected members who represent the various groups of students that make up our membership. At each meeting, those in attendance have the opportunity to shape official SU policy, discuss campaigns, and question elected officers for acountability purposes. Any Edge Hill student is welcome to attend and particpate in the discussion, before ideas are voted on by elected members. The full terms of reference for and current membership of Student Council can be found by following the links below. If you're interested in applying for any of the vacant positions on Student Council, please let us know.
The more of you who participate in Student Council, the more representative we will be of your interests. With that in mind, there's lots of ways for you to get involved.
- Attend a meeting. All Edge Hill students are welcome to attend Student Council and contribute to the discussion. Our next meeting will be held at 5:30pm on Tuesday 5th February 2019, in B003 in the Business School/
- Apply for a casual place. For every Student Council meeting, there are five casual places open to any Edge Hill student wishing to attend as a voting member on a no-commitment basis. If you are interested, please apply here. You are welcome to apply for a casual place for as many meetings as you like. Should the number of applicants exceed the number of positions, places will be allocated on a lottery basis.
- Submit a motion. Is there an issue that you feel passionately about and think your SU should do something about? Submit a Motion to Student Council and your idea may become official SU policy! All you have to do is follow the steps in our online submission form.
- Submit a question to elected officers. Do you have a burning question for our elected officers? Do you want to know what they have been working on and how they have been helping Edge Hill students?
