An Assembly motion is a proposal that can be made by any student at Durham University to a group of student representatives, known as Assembly, to vote on. Whether there is something you think the SU should be working on, for instance getting the University to provide lecture capture, or a particular stance that the SU should take on a policy issue, such as zero tolerance approach to sexual violence, this is the way for you to make change happen.
Use this form to submit ideas for your motion and a member of SU staff will get in touch to discuss next steps.
Your motion will then be taken to Governance and Grants Committee (an elected group of students) for review and a decision will be made on whether your motion can be taken to Assembly and which Assembly meeting your motion will be taken to. At Assembly, your motion will be voted on by members. If it passes, it becomes SU policy for the next two years and your elected Student Officers are mandated to work on it.
