Sometimes, students at Sussex decide they want to get something done, and they make a proposal to the Union to be considered and voted on. This can then become a Policy which outlines the stance the Union has or actions it will take on a particular issue. Any student can submit a policy for consideration, and they may also originate from legal requirement. You can view a full guide to Students' Union policies, including how to make, amend and lapse policy in the Students' Union Policy Guide .
Our operational policies outline how the Students' Union will go about its business.
Our campaigning policies outline what the Students' Union believes and what it wants to change in the Union, University, and wider world. You can view all the policies and progress on them on the Campaigning Policy Progress Tracker .
Code of Conduct
The Students’ Union has a safer spaces & good conduct policy which seeks to enable equal participation by challenging oppressive and discriminatory behaviour.
We also have a bullying and harassment policy and disability statement.
If you have witnessed or are informed of an incident which you feel may be considered misconduct by a Union member, we have a student discipline procedure to deal with your concerns or you can use the University's discipline procedure.
