We want you to tell us what changes we should be working on to improve your University experience here at Sunderland.
This could be on things ranging from improvements to your library and changes to Union merchandise stock, to asserting the need for the Union to work on lobbying for changes to University policy.
When an idea gets 20 supporters it will be taken to either Union Council for further discussion (where you will be invited to present it), or it will be considered for direct change by the relevant member of Union staff depending on the size of the idea.
Once your idea has been submitted and approved, it will be put in a category depending on what stage in the process it is at.
Here is what each category means:
Approved ideas for consideration by other students.
Maybe One Day
These are ideas which failed to gain either the general support of students or the approval of Union Council.
The same idea cannot be taken to Union Council more than once in a single academic year.
Sent to Union Council
This idea has recieved the required level of support but is so big that it must be taken to Union Council for discussion and voting.
The individual who submitted the idea will be invited to have a meeting with a relevant Executive Officer to prepare them to present their idea at Union Council.
Working on it
These are ideas which the Union are working to implement.
Here you can find ideas which have been implemented and the changes that have been achieved.
