Students' Union Committees


Student Senate


Student Senate is the Students' Union's policy-making body, and any student can run to be a Student Senator. Student Senate has the power to make and review policy, ensuring the Union works to reflect the values and ideals of the student body. Policies passed by Student Senate provide the framework within which the Union and its Elected Officers operate.


Scrutiny Committee


Scrutiny Committee is an opportunity for the student body to scrutinise the work of the Elected Officers. This includes reviewing their progress and seeing how they are advancing with ongoing projects, as well as offering suggestions and encouragement. Elected Officers are expected to publish what they have been doing in their role, and the manifesto points they have completed, for all students to see. They then meet with a panel of elected students, Scrutiny Committee Members, who ask them questions on their work and assess their progress.


Annual General Meeting


The Annual General Meeting is a large forum where any student can join the debate on a number of motions proposed by students. As a collective, the student body uses the AGM to determine the direction of Cardiff Students’ Union, to adopt a collective stance on an issue, and decide what action should be taken regarding an issue.


College Forums


College Forums are meetings faciliated by the Student Voice Team, and chaired by a Sabbatical Officer. It provides an opportunity for the Chairs and Vice-Chairs of Student Staff Panels to engage directly with universtiy management and relevant staff, including the College Deans, professional service staff, and the Sabbatical Officer team.
