As a student-led organisation, students have the ability to submit policies that, if passed, will become part of the work we do. It is through this process that you have the opportunity to influence the work of MDXSU. 


A policy mandates the MDXSU Executive Committee to act on an issue that concerns Middlesex University students. It can be something about campus, your course and even a political stance you want MDXSU to adopt. 


There are a number of ways you can submit policy proposals. You can submit your idea through the Ideas for Change process, and get your fellow students to vote on it! If it is an academic idea, you can raise it with your Student Voice Leader, and they can present it at your School Meeting. Or you can even submit a petition, just email Student Voice for more information. 


Each process involves students to have their say on your idea, whether it is online or at a Student Leaders' Conference, or both! Some policies will even go to a full student referendum, held in November and April. If your policy is passed, either at a Student Leaders' Conference or at referendum, you will then work with the MDXSU Executive Committee to implement your policy. 


If you want to submit an idea that could become a policy, visit the Ideas for Change page for non-academic policies, or for academic policies, just let your Student Voice Leader know. You can also view the current policies below.
