MORE SUPPORT FOR SU SOCIETIES


 

THE IDEA

Students wanted more support for societies, including how to set up a society, easier access to society accounts, events support, etc.

 

ACTION

  • The Activities Officer will review the comments about clubs and societies to see what can be done to improve promotion.
  • Societies are student-led and must be set up by students. To set one up, you just need three students to do so. To get started in setting up a new society, there is further information on the Societies webpage.

 

UPDATE

SEPTEMBER 6TH

  • The Activities Officer is intending to attend all training sessions geared towards sports, societies and clubs to promote the support they can receive. 

 

NOVEMBER 29TH

  • The Activities Officer has confirmed that three clubs and four societies have been set up this year.
  • The Activities Officer has confirmed the following: 
    • That more in-depth training for committee members has been provided with multiple sessions across weekends in September.
    • That room bookings must be completed with the Societies Coordinator. However, the Activities Officer, Societies Coordinator and the Specialist Resources Officer have met to discuss room booking and, hopefully, students will find this process easier.
  • The handbook has been updated to include a time frame for students to consider when booking rooms.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Students submit ideas during Change Week.

2. Teams of students gather to hack solutions to the biggest problems.

3. Teams pitch their ideas to a panel of University big wigs.

4. SU Officers and teams work with staff to make the ideas a reality.
