Are you looking to make some noise about something you care about or generate some support for an idea?

Welcome to Change It this tool enables you to submit ideas to Student Council to be voted and acted upon.

Submit any idea and wait to see how many votes it gets.

How does it work?

Step 1: Think It 

Think about what this issue is and how you want it solved, follow this structure if you're stuck!

Facts: What is the issue you’re trying to address? What do we already know about this issue?

Impacts: How does this issue affect students, and in what way? Is it negative?

Reacts: What would you like the Students’ Union to do to address the issue? How do we need to take it forward?

Step 2: Change it: 

Use Change It to input your idea, check to see if the idea has already been passed as we might already be working on it! If you are studying on a professional course, before submitting an idea, please ensure that you are considering your professional guidance/ agreement with the University.

Step 3: Vote it:

Get your cohort and peers to vote on your issue! It must get at least 25 up-votes, and a total of 25 up-votes more than down-votes within 6 weeks of posting in order to be added to the SU Student Council agenda, otherwise it will be rejected*

    Improve the help zone and student welfare appointments.

    Current
      Find a way to minimise delays once students make appointments- this could be done through a survey with questions surrounding level of urgency, staff can then work through requests in more manageable slots and then have follow up appointments within 2 weeks or so of the first one if needed. Maybe have an anonymous forum where students can voice issues without feeling exposed and confident that their problems will be kept confidential- promote the over the phone calling/messaging counselling service. Conduct more staff training for those in the help-zone, have refresher sessions on how to guide students to the right support connection. i.e. in specific areas. Promote The Sanctuary, and maybe have external professionals in to have sessions/ make those who are experts in mental health, finance etc. more known to students by giving them notice on the universities website.
