What is CUSU Council?
CUSU council is the decision making body of CUSU. It is a space where all students are welcome to come forward to propose and debate motions whilst holding their elected officers to account. Each college and faculty has voting members who will vote base on their constituents, you can see who your reps are here. In a summary, council includes
|Updates from elected officers||Holding those elected to account||Discussions around suggested policy|

There is a council held every other week of term. The date, time and location will be advertised in advance on our website and social media channels.
Any student can attend CUSU Council, propose motions and amendments and participate in debates.
