Your chance to change things - three Students' Union referenda announced

Students will be voting on three different referenda questions later this month to decide what campaigns and policies the Students' Union should support.

The three questions are:

  • Should the Students' Union continue to hold a policy in support of the BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanction) movement?
  • Should the Students' Union implement a policy opposing the government's Prevent legislation?
  • Should the Students' Union adopt the proposed Gender Equality policy?

Details about each referendum and its objectives can be found in The Badger.

Voting on the policy will take place from 30 April to 4 May. Students will be able to vote at

If you want to be an official campaigner for or against any of the referenda questions, email by 9am on Monday 23 April. Being an official campaigner means you can write the argument for or against a proposal and have access to resources to persuade people to vote in a particular way.
