What is Student Senate?
The Student Senate is the most senior policy making body which directly involves the students.
The meetings are held 3-4 times a year and work to create policy from ideas submitted from the members of YSJSU – that means that all the work we do is influenced directly by YOU the student..
At the meeting you will be able to hold your elected officers to account as well as actively acknowledge that you have had an impact on how the Students’ Union works for the benefit of the student body
The next Senate meeting is at Tuesday 21st November at 4PM in DG124
Who Represents me?
Your Senate representatives are elected at various points in the year. Beginning in February with the Annual Election and the reveal of the new Presidents and Chairs of School and then again in October where we elect our Liberation & Sports/Societies Officers.
The total number of members on senate is 20 with a student ‘Leader of Senate’ chairing each meeting in the year.
Who sits on Senate?
So your Senators are:
President of the Students' Union
President of Education
President of Wellbeing and Diversity
Chairs of School (X9)
