Our policies

Welcome to the Policy page! SU policy is passed through Assembly and it’s sub-committees and is valid for a period of 2 years from the date that it was passed. Policy mandates our SU Officers to work on things and affect change directed by students. If you’d like to find out more about how you can submit a policy, please get in touch with our Policy Manager at dsu.governance@durham.ac.uk.
