The 2018 student union council members have been revealed.
During this year’s October union council elections, 48 students ran for a position and a total of 552 voters. But why are union council elections important?
What is union council?
Christ church students’ union said: “Students’ Unions are one of the most democratic membership organisations in the UK. Every one of them has its own structure for debating ideas and campaigns and making decisions. They’re run by students who are elected by students – and everyone can have their say.
“Here at Christ Church SU, our democratic structure is called Union Council.
“The Council meets at least 5 times a year and produces policy which is created from issues affecting students which can be to do with your life, your university life or your union.
“The council also runs campaigns to change things for the better of the student experience and the community, and to create awareness about issues which matter to you.”
