The Meeting will have 2 parts:


Part 1: Shape our new priorities

  1. What are students saying? Hear from recent research. What don’t we understand?
  2. Share your thoughts and shape our future priorities on emerging themes:

Everyone goes on about the Bath Spa community – but is that really a thing? How can we ensure everyone feels a part?

How can we help every student to have an equality of opportunity?

Health and well-being are in all the headlines but what could the SU do the really make a difference?

How should we shape our role in the local community and ensure students are a valued part of the life of our University city?

Do you feel under-represented? Do you feel the University or Union doesn’t listen? Do you know how to raise a concern? How can we change that?

Overwhelmed or underwhelmed by our comms? What changes will our new website bring? Email? Facebook? Insta? TikTok? What works for you? What standards should you expect?

If we put sustainability at the heart of the SU, what should that mean in practice?


Part 2: Changing our charitable model.

The Union’s Trustees have agreed that the Students’ Union should become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. This will mean setting up a new charity and transferring all the assets of the current Union to the new organisation ... BUT WHAT DOES THIS REALLY MEAN?

What could the benefits be? IT’S YOUR UNION SO THIS NEEDS YOUR APPROVAL!
