Student Council

Students on campus

No elections are currently running

Student Council is the highest student-led representational body at the Students’ Union.

 

What is it?

  • - It gives you the chance to hear what's happening behind the scenes, approve new ideas and policies, put forward suggestions for change, and hold the Elected Officers to account.
  • - Its membership consists of all Student Leaders [that is; BAME Advocates, Buddy Volunteers, School Community Organisers, Society Committee Members, Student Reps and (HSU) Student-Staff], and it takes place (a minimum of) five times throughout each academic year.
  • - In order that students are at its heart, a Chair is elected by Council members in the first meeting, alongside a Deputy. These students then get training for their positions, and host the Council meetings that are held thereafter.

 

How can I get involved?

  • - First off, if you're simply wanting to attend a Student Council meeting then all you have to do is look out for the relevant communication(s) in-year, provided that you hold a position as one of the Student Leaders mentioned above, of course.
  • - If you're looking to get even more involved and want something specific included on the agenda for one of our meetings, we encourage you to email reps@hertssu.com, outlining (1) what it is, (2) why you think it's important to students, and (3) what you want to be done about it moving forward. For sake of ease, this can be collated and sent through via the following form: Student Council Motion Form 2022-23.
