SU Stances

Leeds Beckett Students' Union takes a position on a number of issues that affect students at Leeds Beckett; these are known as stances.

A full list of our currect stances can be found below - these take a number of forms, from our current Have Your Say platform, through to 'policy' passed under our previous democratic forum, the Student Council. If you have any questions about any of the stances found here, or would like to get involved in any of the actions listed, please contact us at studentvoice@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.

All stances remain live for 3 academic years before expiring. When a stance is due to expire, the Student Officer team will review the stance and recommend to the appropriate discussion forum that they should be either renewed without amendment for up to three years, amended or allowed to lapse.
