Policy is the way in which you can change the union, the University or the world.
Big or small, if you have an idea and what YUSU to do something about it, the policy process is the way to do it.
Policy has been submitted on a whole range of subjects. These include:
The Policy & Review Group, or PRG for short, is a body of 5 students responsible for reviewing and reporting on the policy process within YUSU. It ensures that students have the ability to submit Ideas and that policy is generated both transparently, accountably and fairly.
The group is headed by the Policy Coordinator, who is voted into the role during the annual YUSU Elections. The remaining members are chosen by a panel made up of representatives from the Liberation Networks.
They work with YUSU’s Democracy & Campaigns Coordinator to create Policy Briefings to ensure that consultation can be held on more divisive policy ideas and produce reports on the feedback given, and how they reached their decision.
The current PRG consists of Policy Coordinator Jack Harvey and 4 appointed volunteers;
