The student officers are eight students, elected by the whole student population, who work full time at the Students' Union for a year.
The Students' Union's constitution and bye-laws is a list of rules and regulations which the Students' Union works to. It covers areas such as Students' Union Officers powers, committee, sports club and society regulations, the Union complaints procedure and our policies.
The constitution is reviewed annually around the time of the Students' Union Officer elections (March). Proposed changes are then voted on in a referendum. However, students can make a submission to amend the constitution at any time by calling a referendum themselves.
The Constitutional Committee is recommending a number of changes to the Bye-Laws, which will be considered by Students' Union Council on Thursday 16 May.
If you have any comments on any of the proposed changes please contact your Students' Union Councillor.
