A policy proposal is basically a fancy way of saying "idea". Any student can submit a proposal to Union Council, and suggest ways for UPSU to improve. In order to submit a policy to Union Council, you must have a proposer (you) and at least one person who will second your idea (seconder). You can then submit your proposal to the Student Voice Team, who will help you develop your proposal, if needed, and include it on the agenda for the next meeting. The members present at the meeting will debate then vote on whether to approve your proposal. If your idea is approved, it will then become a part of UPSUs working policies, and we will work with you to make it happen!
You can also submit your ideas in collaboration with a Part-time Officer
Please use the Policy Proposal Template to formally submit a proposal for debate at Union Council - do get in touch with Student Voice for help with this if you are not sure what to do!
