Why it's important

The Students' Union is led by students for students and exists to improve your experiences as a University of Plymouth student, on and off campus. We have introduced Sub-Committees to open vital discussions to the wider student body, not just for elected reps. Any student is welcome to attend any sub-committee however, there are always key elected Reps who are expected to attend each meeting. For this Committee Meeting the Part-time Environment and Sustainability Officer is expected to attend 


What happens at the meeting?

At the Sub-committee students:

  • Discuss ideas for the development of the University or Students' Union. This may be on a specific topic or with a speaker from the university
  • Share feedback on thier academic experience and that of their peers 
  • Identify issues and discuss solutions on matters that impact on the student body 
  • Highlight and progress campaigns that aim to have a positive impact of the academic experience
  • Propose changes to Union policy that are worked on and presented at the Union Council
