Assembly

Covid-19 update: moving Assembly online

Assembly's first meeting of the year will be held on Zoom on 29 October. You can read more details here.

Motions must be submitted to Governance & Grants committee by 19 October via the online form here. The form for submitting questions will be live until 12 midnight on 27 October here. Items that aren’t motions may be added to the agenda on a shorter timeframe if there isn’t an accompanying paper, so if in doubt, please email dsu.governance@durham.ac.uk.

Assembly is a body made up of a cross-section of student representatives elected by you! They all vote at the Assembly meetings to ensure your interests are represented through shaping policy (things they want the Union to change or address) and holding Officers accountable.

Any student can submit an idea or policy to Assembly and any student can attend to speak for or against an idea. Come along and be part of the conversation!

If you’d like to find out more about how you can submit a policy to Assembly, get in touch with our Policy Manager here

Please note, any student can submit a motion to Assembly. Motions must be submitted to Governance & Grants committee no less than 10 clear days before the next meeting.

Black Lives Matter: Assembly is committed to tackling racism and oppression wherever it is found. You can read more here.
