You are highly encouraged to participate in the duties of the Council.
Students elected as Executives of some Union sub-organisations can participate in the Council as Union Councillors. This includes running for the Union Executives, Executives of Faculty Societies, Hall Students’ Associations, Sports Association, Cultural Association, Independent Clubs Association and Campus Media.
Students can also consider running for the Popularly Elected Union Councilors or opt for the seats for Full Members of the Union in the Council Standing Committees, which allow students to formulate the policies of the Union or the University. There are 8 seats for Full Members of the Union in the Current Affairs Committee and 7 seats in the University Affairs Committee.
If you are not interested in joining the Council, you may sit in on the meetings. You may even request the speaking right from the Council Chairperson to engage in the discussion during the meetings. Voting in General Pollings and Annual Elections is another way to show your stance towards different Union affairs.
If you do not agree with the resolution of the Council, under the endorsement of at least 3% of all Full Members of the Union, a General Meeting or General Polling can be called to consider the decision made in Council meetings. It makes the administration of the Union accountable to members.
