Union Affairs Committee (UAC) is a team of fifteen elected students who together act as the regulatory and procedural body for the Union's activities. Any constitutional or policy changes must be approved by them and they are also responsible for ensuring that activities such as elections and disciplinary appeals run properly. The Executive Team are accountable to Union Affairs Committee, who sit just below the Board of Trustees in terms of decision-making power when it comes to matters of Union Governance.
The Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for governing the affairs of the Union, but has a duty to consult and take full account of matters referred from the Student Forum as a student representative body whenever appropriate. It makes key decisions on the Union’s financial strategy, assets and delegations, as well as many other important aspects which affect students. It also monitors and directs the objectives and performance of staff members and ensures legal and regulatory compliance within the Union. There are seven positions available for students to run for in the Summer Term.
