Submit New Idea

Welcome to the ideas platform. This is a place where you can submit an idea for change as well as voting and commenting on other students ideas. The more votes and comments a post gets the more likely it’ll be taken to the SUBU Summit or Student Member’ meeting where students will vote whether to adopt the idea as Union Policy. 

 

 

Your ideas can be about anything, from big structural changes to small amendments. They can call for change from within SUBU, BU or the wider community.  Your ideas can be action based such as asking the Union to lobby the university on a specific issue or ideological such as supporting a specific group. Prior to every meeting of the SUBU Summit and Student Members' meeting the SUBU Summit Chair goes through all your ideas and decides which ones should be developed into motions and taken to the meetings. Motions are discussed and debated and a final vote is then taken. If approved these motions then become Union Policy. You can find out more about Union Policy, as well as viewing the current list of live policies here.

 

When submitting your idea be sure to include the following information in the description:

1. What you think the problem is- this should include background information including facts, figures and research

2. What you think the solution is- this is the large scale changes that need to happen

3. What ideas you have for implementation- this is the specific steps that you think need to be taken 

4. Which Full-Time Officer you think should lead on it

5. What other student groups you think should be involved in this work

6. Your name and student number

 

Once you have submitted your idea one of the team will be in touch to invite you in to discuss your ideas!

    Lecture/Seminar finishing times

    Current
      Many of the members of the Women in Business Society have raised the idea of lectures/seminars not finishing when it is dark outside. Given what has been going on for a while now our members feel unsafe walking home alone in the dark. They understand that this may be difficult to put into place but think that this will reduce anxiety and increase the amount of lectures/seminars that they feel comfortable to attend.

    2:32pm on 12 Jan 22 Hi Lily, thanks for submitting this idea! We have a policy on the length of teaching days and sessions that would include this. You can read the policy on our policy book (https://www.subu.org.uk/represented/svandp/policybook/#tracker ). If you want to talk to someone in more detail about this, you can contact our VP Education Chiko at suvpeducation@bournemouth.ac.uk
