Policies



At the University of Lincoln Students' Union we have two types of policies; student and statutory.

If you would like more information on the differences between these policies we have provided a short explanation of each one.

 

Student Policies


Student Policies are specific to Lincoln and are made by the members of the Students' Union. Policies tend to identify issues and offer ideas on how to solve the issue; whether it be specific to the Union, University or community. Once they are passed, the Union will work to implement your idea. These policies last for three years if no time is stipulated or if a more recent policy supercedes it. For an idea to become a policy it must be passed by Student Council and the Board of Trustees. An All Student Meeting or a referendum can also pass a policy. If you have any ideas on how to improve theUnion or your experience in Lincoln please visit our SUggestions page.

 

Statutory Policies


Statutory Policies are rules we have to have permanently to help us mange the Students' Union as a charity. These policies are the responsibility of the trustee board and have no time limit. They are reviewed and updated regularly.
