Passed Policies and Progress

Find out what Students' Union policies have been passed by students, and more importantly, what is being done about them.

Here you can find a list of all the policies which have been passed by student council. We're working on a live tracker so you can check the progress of each policy, but until we've got that up and running please contact your student president team to ask for an update on policies. You can also check out current ideas and rejected ideas.

    Fix the SAUWS Policy Comments Board

      SAUWS should alter the comments board so that comments on policies will support paragraphs.

      Why you think it is important

      Students are encouraged to comment on policies which are published in order to help shape them before they come up for a vote. The current iteration of the comments system strips out line breaks in comments so that any substantive comments are presented as a wall of text with no paragraphs, even if they were included by the original author. As well as looking bad it makes lengthy comments really hard to read.

      Is there anything else you think we should know?

      As well as looking ugly, by presenting information in dense paragraphs it is less accessible to students with certain disabilities, including but not limited to, dyslexia. The Association has a legal obligation to make reasonable adjustments to ensure accessibility to disabled people, even if those people have not directly complained.
