Societies Committee

The Societies Committee meets regularly during term time. The location can change so check the agenda to find out where the meeting will be that week. Society Reps support and represent societies at Sussex, using a seat on the committee to make democratic decisions on matters affecting societies, including new society applications and funding applications, shortlisting for Student Awards and society development at the Students’ Union. Reps also gather feedback from other societies about their experiences with the intention of facilitating positive change.
