With the first Union Council of the year coming up, find out what it’s about and the topics of discussion.
Monday marks an exciting time for Hull University Union, it's the first Union Council (UC) of the academic year, so why does this matter to you?
Union Council is the highest decision making body of your Union. You may have seen our 6 Sabbatical Officers around campus already, these are elected by students yearly to essentially run the Students’ Union and represent your student voice, whether that be campaigning for issues and concerns you may face, fighting to improve the University facilities and services, or building better relationships with the community. These Sabbs, along with part-time officers and chairs of liberation groups form the body of Union Council, and are the key decision makers that will shape your University experience.
With such big responsibilities, and 18,000 students to represent, from such a vast array of cultures, types of study, and minority groups, Union Council is where these Officers are held to account on their decisions and performance to ensure that any movements they make are proved to be representative and for the right reasons. It is also where policy is passed to show where HUU stands on issues, such as payday lenders.
