Student Council is the decision making body of the Students’ Association of the University of the West of Scotland (SAUWS).  It is the forum for UWS students to voice their concerns and where they can make decisions about the direction of the Students’ Association and the University. 

Our policies shape the direction that the student's association take and can be about anything that concerns students. For example, current policy means SAUWS works together with UWS to work on things as varied as improving food offerings on campus to improving support for student entrepreneurs to lobbying for a library fine amnesty.  Policy also leads on more national areas - and means that SAUWS will always campaign against fee charges or fee interests for students. It might even be something small, such as the banning of Blurred Lines from being played in association spaces. 

ANY student can submit policy using the form below - your ideas don't need to be complicated! 

Once policies are submitted they will be put online here, and any student may comment or ask for clarification.

If you submit a policy suggestion you will be invited to student council to present it - but you don't have to. In your absence the Union Chair will read your submission - and then your elected student reps will vote on the policy.

So give us your ideas, and help us work for you!

    Clearer Non-Academic Misconduct Policy

    Rejected
      To include specific mention of Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Transphobic, and Disablist comments as examples of Non-Academic Misconduct.

      Why you think it is important

      I think that the policy is just in need of a refresh. Most students know that these comments are not acceptable but it could be helpful to some to be more specific.

      Is there anything else you think we should know?

      It might be useful to consider the Equality Act 2010 which lists all protected characteristics but some may not be relevant to this context.
