Any student at Strathclyde can help shape the policy of Strath Union. Before you start on your policy, here are a few things to think about:

  1. Does the Union already have policy concerning the topic you want to discuss? You can check through our current policy HERE 
  2. When you are writing a policy proposal, consider what evidence you can use to support your case. This could include links to relevant websites, articles or surveys. 
  3. Have you discussed your policy proposal with anyone? It's great to talk to other students about your policy proposal, to make sure you're covering everything you'd like to. 
  4. Don't forget to contact your Executive and Non-Executive Officers! They can really help with the detail and also support your policy proposal through our processes. 
  5. Strath Union Staff are here to guide you through the process and support your policy proposal. If you would like to discuss anything about your proposal, you can pop into Level 7 or drop us an email at  

If you would like, you can submit a proposal by filling in the form below. A member of staff will then get in touch with more information, or arrange a meeting with you. 

Please note: if a policy proposal is received after the deadline, it can only be included at the discretion of the Democracy Convenor.
