The Union Council comprises 21 elected officers – three Councillors from each of the four campuses, the Students’ Union President Kent and President Surrey. They are responsible for the direction of the Union through the execution of policy, promotion of student rights, and the development of projects and campaigns to represent all members of the students’ union.
Councillors feed back to the Union on a variety of student concerns by overseeing campus forums which are open to all students to attend. These forums discuss student life, courses, and how your time at UCA can be improved. As well as forums, Executives work closely with clubs, societies, and liberation groups to bring communities together.
MOTIONS RECEIVED AND OUTCOMES
A member of the Union Council can submit a motion for the group to vote on. A motion is normally written by describing a current situation, and a proposal for how the students’ union should change it. Motions can be amended to remove or add details, and then the committee will vote to ‘pass’ or ‘fall’. The union will then make that change or implement the motion into policy.
Members of the committee can vote for or against the motion, or abstain from voting – meaning they neither supports or oppose the proposal. To pass, a motion must receive the support of over 50% of the commitee (with 11 people on the committee, a motion must receive six votes to pass).
