On 22 November, members of SUmmit met for the first meeting of 2022/23. SU Officers updated members of SUmmit on projects and topical issues, and three Standpoint proposals were discussed.
For one of the proposals discussed at the November meeting, SUmmit members agreed to request statements from the student body to measure student opinion on the matter.
Can any and all interested students provide statements of support, opposition, or neutrality relating to the following Standpoint proposal:
"The University should offer appropriate revision materials for different exam formats"
You can read the discussion by SUmmit members about this proposal in the minutes under item 5.2.
To submit your statement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 16 December. The statements will be collated anonymously and shared with the SUmmit committee to inform their vote at their next meeting.
