Union Council

Union Council is a key student committee, with responsibility for determining MDXSU policy and deciding action on student ideas for change.

Your President and Vice Presidents will also report on their work and actions at Union Council meetings, giving students an opportunity to ask questions and find out more about their campaigns.

Union Council meet three times per year, and is made up of students from various backgrounds, experiences and areas of study:

  • Your MDXSU President and three Vice Presidents
  • 29 Student Group representatives, including:
    • Leaders of Liberation groups - BAME, LGBT+, disabled and women students
    • Students from our communities group - mature, postgradute, international, healthcare and erasmus students, and student parents and carers
    • Society leaders
  • 18 academic representatives, from each academic department

Only elected Union Council members can vote in policy decisions as part of Union Council, though any student is welcome to attend.

Upcoming Union Council dates will be listed at www.mdxsu.com/events
