What is Student Council?
The Student Council is made up of 50 students who discuss and vote on UL Student Life policy. As the representative group of all UL students they direct Executive on what work to carry out. Council meets every second Tuesday at 6pm.
Council members are UL students, 25 are elected Department Representatives for each of UL’s academic departments, and 15 are Interest Group Representatives with particular responsibility for specific student life and welfare areas.
The 11 Executive members attend Council. Only the volunteer Executive members have a vote. The President, Welfare and Academic student officers do not have a vote.
A list of all positions on the Student Council is available in the Student Representation Handbook
