Minutes From Students’ Council

Students’ Council is the governing body of UMSU, and consists of 15 General Members as well as an elected Graduate, Indigenous, International, Disabilities, People of Colour and Queer Representative.

There is also a sub-committee of Students’ Council (the Operations Sub-Committee) which meets regularly throughout semester.

Below are the minutes from Students’ Council for this year, as well as meetings of Council’s current and former sub-committees. If you have any questions regarding Students’ Council or Operations Sub-Committee, or wish to view additional documents such as reports referred to in these minutes, please feel free to email the General Secretary at secretary@union.unimelb.edu.au or come into the UMSU offices to have a chat.

Minutes will generally only be uploaded once they have been confirmed as a true and accurate recording of proceedings (this usually happens at the next quorate meeting held of the committee in question). Unconfirmed minutes may be made available to students by contacting the General Secretary at secretary@union.unimelb.edu.au.
