POLICY-MAKING AT UNION COUNCIL

If you are a member of Council and you want to make a policy change, you can do this by bringing forward a mandate to Council.

If you are a student and you want to make a policy change, get in touch with your Class Rep or College Officer and they can bring forward a mandate on your behalf.

If you want to create a policy which would change the constitution, this cannot be done at Union Council. To make a change to the constitution you need to call a policy referendum. To get more information on this process please email the UCDSU Returning Office at returningoffice@ucdsu.ie
