Leeds Trinity Students' Union exists to empower and support students to achieve their potential. We annually elect two full-time Sabbatical Officers (President and Vice-President) and Student Council. Your student council are here to listen, create positive change, make your voices heard and to help Leeds Trinity students get the most out of their student experience by supporting you to reach your potential.

The Student officers are accountable to YOU so take a look at the Student Council Minutes which detail what was discussed at every Student Council meeting. If there's a Student Council meeting coming up soon then the agenda will be avliable here
If you want to submit something to council here's a handy flowchart of how it all works
and here's a slighty wordier explanation:
Any student who is a full member of the Students' Union (all students are automatically members unless they have opted out) is able to propose a policy at a Student Council meeting. To do this, you will need to put your idea together and submit it through our Students' Say hub online. Twenty-five students will need to interact with your idea in order for it to be proposed to Council, and for policy to be passed regarding a Union position on your idea. You might want the Students' Union to change its own internal practices in some way, lobby the University to change the way they work, lobby local or national Government on a particularly issue, or take some other form of action that you think would make a difference to students' lives. If you would like to discuss an idea or put a policy forward following submitting an idea, you can email email@example.com, addressing your email to Charles, copying in firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and student number in the email.
