Essex is made up of a rich variety of different communities. We want to make sure ALL these communities have a voice and have the power to make real change to both the SU and the University and surrounding areas.
The Student Parliament meets once a month and is made up of elected representatives from all these communities.
Student Parliament has the power to impliment SU policies and hold your elected officials accountable. It is also an opportunity to highlight and discuss other issues that relate to the communities represented.
Every month Parliament will also receive an update on how the SU is progressing the Big Plan. All the minutes from these meetings can be found here and if you would like to add to the agenda and see a topic raised or discussed the list of representatives can be found below. If you have a question relating to Student Parliament please see the link below:
