11:23am on 25 Apr 22 Thanks Sophie and team. I am really glad to know that my idea is been taken forward. I wish to continuously getting update on my idea till it become a policy(I believe this is what is going to happen ultimately). Please keep me updated on the status of various stages of my idea till it reaches to the final stage.

11:34am on 3 May 22 This idea has been considered by the officer team and has been rejected because it was felt that society committee members are already visible when organizing events. The SU would support individual societies to create their own badges/pins if required but it is felt that it wouldnt be right for this to be a uni-wide policy.

How it works

Submit

Submit an idea... anything that could improve student experience is a valid idea.

 

  • You must be a BCU student, logged in using your student account
  • You can choose to submit anonymously, so your name won’t be displayed.
    BCUSU staff will still be able to see your name and email to contact you

 

Discuss

You will be contacted by the Student Voice Co-ordinator (Student Led Change) to discuss your idea and make any relevant changes to it.

Vote

Your idea then goes live, here on the Ideas Board for other students to vote and comment.

It will be live until:

  • it reaches 16 positive votes
    or until the end of the academic year (whichever comes first)
  • Students can vote with a thumbs up (agree) or thumbs down (disagree)
  • Votes and comments will help the Executive Officer team make decisions

 

Action

If your idea reaches the 16-positive vote threshold:

 

  • it will be handed over to the Executive Officer team for review
  • they will discuss the idea and decide what action to take
  • the comments section will be updated with the agreed upon actions

If an idea is raised to hold an Executive Officer to account, and it gains 16 positive votes, it will be reviewed at Scrutiny Group.
