The Constitution is essential to the everyday operations of SRUCSA as it sets out the rules by which we govern ourselves. It also details the operating procedures of clubs & societies, finances as well as the remits of the two Sabbatical Officers and the six Campus Officers.
The new SRUCSA constitution followed the NUS guidelines and pulled aspects from all of the six merger Students’ Associations that formed SRUCSA. Sparqs ensured that it was a document fit for purpose and it was approved by SRUC’s Education Board on the 20 February 2014.
The full Constitution is available in a pdf version bellow but the Purpose and Objectives of Students’ Association are as follows...
SRUCSA shall work in partnership with SRUC to maximise the student experience of all SRUC students.
These aims and objects shall be practiced without discrimination on the grounds of age, sex, race, religion, creed, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition, except that action may be taken to promote equality of opportunity.
These aims and objectives shall be practiced independent of any political party or religious organisation.
SRUCSA will operate to a strategic plan, which will outline a vision, mission and strategic aims. However, the broad objectives of the organisation will be:
- To represent the students, both collectively and individually, in all matters that relate to their time at SRUC.
- To act as an effective means of communication between the student body, SRUC and other bodies.
- To promote student engagement and to assist in developing the social, cultural and sporting life of SRUC.
- To be the students’ recognised representative body to SRUC’s Education Board and the SRUC Board.
To represent SRUC student interests to relevant external organisations.
